Elf on the Shelf, free Santa visits in Downtown DuBois


DuBois, PA – Elf on the Shelf will be in downtown windows from Dec. 11-18 for all ages to find and report back for prizes, and Santa Claus will be available to meet with children, again, in downtown DuBois.

Elf on the Shelf

Downtown DuBois Inc. is hosting its annual Elf on the Shelf scavenger hunt sponsored by the DuBois Kiwanis Club and Priority First Federal Credit Union. Forms with lists of participating businesses will be available starting Saturday, Dec. 11. All ages from 2 and up can look for the elf, fill out the form to report what the elves are doing and return it for a chance to win a prize for their age groups.

Forms can be picked up in person or downloaded.

In person, they will be handed out by Jingles the Elf from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the lobby of 2 E. Long Ave., downtown DuBois. Those age 2-20 will receive a gift from Jingles to kick off the event. After 2 p.m., the forms will be in the lobby of 2 E. Long Ave. on the piano to pick up any time until the hunt ends Dec. 18. Online, the forms are available starting Saturday at downtowndubois.com. It will be linked on Facebook on the Downtown DuBois PA page.

The elves are in windows only to participate any time and any day with congestion and Covid-safety distancing, and it helps meet more people’s schedules.

After the forms are filled, they can be dropped off in the lobby of 2 E. Long Ave. where Downtown DuBois Inc. has its office. The drop off box is on the same piano with the forms. Or it can be mailed to 2 E. Long Ave., Suite 120B, DuBois.
