Santa Claus Downtown!

Join the Downtowners as we celebrate the holidays and welcome Santa Claus to Downtown Bismarck!  Have your picture taken with old Kris Kringle and tell him if you’ve been naughty or nice.  Groups of friends, families, and children welcome!  Santa will be at Exposure Boutique at 208 E Broadway (near Hey Ocean Boutique) on Friday December 19 from 4:00-7:30pm. Exposure Boutique will donate a portion of the proceeds to benefit Downtown Bismarck revitalization.  An electronic copy will be emailed to you to share!  Make a day of it and get last minute holiday shopping done!  For more information on Santa Claus Selfie portraits or last minute shopping visit
