Santa Claus sets up shop in Gingerbread House at Coastal Carolina

November 29, 2004

Area children are invited to visit Santa at his workshop, a life-size gingerbread house located on the Coastal Carolina University campus.

Santa will be in town Wednesday, Dec. 1 and Thursday, Dec. 2 from 4 to 7 p.m. The gingerbread house faces Chanticleer Drive in front of the residence halls across from the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration. Free hot chocolate, cookies, gifts and pictures with Santa will be available for children. The free event is open to the public and sponsored by Coastals Office of Residence Life.

The gingerbread house was created and is operated by Coastals Residence Life maintenance staff and other volunteer staff members including students. It was the dream of retired maintenance man Edward Brunette to convert an old pump house into a gingerbread house for the community and for children. Each year hundreds of children come to see Santa at Coastals own gingerbread house.
