Santa’s Mailbox: With children making their lists and checking them twice, the City of Fishers is doing its part in keeping the Santa image alive. Children can drop off a letter to Santa, with a self-addressed and stamped envelope, into two Santa’s Mailboxes throughout the city. Mailboxes are at City Hall, 1 Municipal Dr., and the parks and recreation office, 11565 Brooks School Rd. Letters will be accepted through Dec. 11. Children will receive a response from Santa before Christmas Eve.

The Sleddy: An ultimate sledding competition will come to Fishers early next year. The event is inspired by The Eddie Aikau Invitational and only occurs if the weather is right. Competitors find a team and create a sled. The Sleddy may take place between Jan. 3 and March 18, if the right condition permit. The competition will be at Flat Fork Creek Park, 16141 E. 101st St., Fortville. Teams of 2 to 5 children or adults are accepted, and a statement will be issued 24 hours in advance of the event on the Fishers Parks and Recreation Facebook and Twitter accounts notifying teams of the Sleddy date. All riders must have previously signed a liability waiver. Teams can begin constructing their sleds now. For more, visit
