Visit Santa

Santa is making his way around Lake County!


Main Street is decked out in holiday lights, Christmas trees are strapped to car rooftops, and Santa Claus himself dropped by Wauconda's @lindyslanding this morning. Christmas is definitely in the air! If you missed the big guy this morning, don't worry! He'll be back Sunday, Dec. 11! Check out @lindyslanding's feed for details. ?? @lindyslanding ??#explorewauconda
