West Side Nut Club Cancels Annual 'Santa Land' Event Due to COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is canceling Saint Nick's annual visit to Evansville's west side.

Posted: Dec 2, 2020 9:49 AM

Officials with the West Side Nut Club have called off their annual Santa Land event for 2020 due to continued COVID-19 activity in the area.

Club members hope the December tradition at Acorn Plaza can return in 2021.

The cancelation of the Christmas time event may come as no surprise with other downtown Evansville holiday events being canceled due to the virus, in addition to the Nut Club canceling its iconic Fall Festival back in July due to safety concerns created by the virus.

Even though Jolly Old Saint Nicholas won't be making his usual appearance for the now-canceled Santa Land event, kids and families hoping to meet Santa may still get that chance at Evansville's Eastland Mall from Dec. 4 - Dec 24.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
