Residents can get their photos taken with Santa Claus and order food to-go from Palisade Restaurant from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Dec. 11-12 and Dec. 18-19 at Elliott Bay Marina, 2601 W. Marina Place.

Santa’s Workshop, with Santa and Mrs. Claus, will be set up at the entrance to Palisade. According to the press release, guests will drive up through twinkling lights and gently falling snow, hop out of their cars under the portico and position themselves on the bottom steps, properly socially distanced from Santa and Mrs. Claus, who will be at the top of the steps. 

Steve Schimmelman Photography will be onsite to take photos, which can be downloaded later for $40.

Guests are encouraged to bring a food or cash donation for Northwest Harvest. Any car doing so will be entered to win a drawing for two bikes that are being donated by BMW Seattle, each worth $400 in value. 

People can also order from a combined Palisade Restaurant /Maggie’s Bluff menu, with the food delivered to cars.
