Santa and his elves join participants in the pool.

The Westfield Area YMCA invites the community to celebrate the holiday season at Swim with Santa on Dec. 11 at the Main Y Facility located at 220 Clark St. in Westfield.

Participants choose a 30-minute time slot between 1:15-3:30 p.m. to swim with Santa and his elves. A parent or guardian must be in the pool with children age 6 and younger or children who can’t swim. Before or after your time in the pool, enjoy more fun with holiday arts and crafts.

Register online or in-person at the Welcome Center. Proceeds benefit the Y’s Annual Support Campaign which ensures that no one who lives or works in Cranford, Garwood, Mountainside or Westfield and is experiencing a bona fide financial hardship is denied the opportunity to participate at the Y.

Contact the elf-in-charge, Kim Koza, at [email protected] or call 908-301-9622 ext. 253 for more information.
