INDIANAPOLIS — Santa will arrive at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum at 8:30 a.m. Friday faster than ever this season in a Dallara IndyCar driven by a Guinness World Record holder. After his speedy arrival, he will make his traditional jolly trip down the Yule Slide at 10 a.m.

Jolly Days Winter Wonderland continues the museum’s holiday celebration from Friday through Jan. 6. Enjoy traditional holiday favorites such as the Yule Slide, Jingles the Jolly Bear and visits with Santa. Have fun with Jingles and his friends.
