Why You Should Be At Santee Winter Wonderland This Year

Hosted by the Fashion District Business Improvement District (BID) in partnership with The Santee Alley Association, Santee Winter Wonderland is an annual community event, created with the idea of providing much needed dwell space for holiday shoppers near the Santee Alley.

And if shopping, food and/or holiday cheer doesn’t make you want to be at #SWW2019…then here’s FIVE more reasons to attend:

1. Santa AND his elf are coming.
