The candy canes fell off Santa’s sleigh on his pre-Christmas flyover of North Utica!

We welcome children and their families to help find the candy canes – be sure to bring a flashlight!

The North Utica Community Center, with support from Cliff’s Local Market, will be hosting Santa’s Candy Cane Hunt & Horse-Drawn Wagon Ride on December 15th. The Hunt will be 5:30-6:00PM—Santa will arrive at 6:00PM. Following the hunt, stay to visit with Santa, enjoy some treats or a Horse-Drawn Wagon Ride. This is a free event, open to the public, and a great time for the whole family!

The North Utica Community Center strives to find ways for the community to come together to enjoy and support one another. “This is our first Candy Cane Hunt,” says Executive Director, Sandy Soroka, “and we hope to make it an annual event. Santa, Cliff’s Local Market and I look forward to hosting this fun filled evening.”


The North Utica Community Center is located at 50 Riverside Dr., Utica, NY 13502.
