Due to covid-19, this year may be the time when we need holiday cheer the most.

That’s why the folks Elevate Coffee invite the community out for free photos with Santa on Dec. 5, 12 and 19 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

To participate in the free photos, locals need to go online at elevatecoffee.com and register for a time. Masks are required during check-in and this event will adhere to CDC guidelines.

In addition to photos with Santa, throughout the month, Elevate will also host live music in an outdoors and socially distanced venue.

“Since 2010, Elevate has featured live music from local, regional, and nationally acclaimed musicians,” according to Elevate. “From smooth jazz to coffee house acoustic, there is a genre to please every musical taste. Join us on Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. to enjoy live music nights at Elevate Coffee.”

Elevate reps note that they’re not just about serving up coffee, but are all about community and giving back, too.

“We don’t just serve coffee. We serve people. Our baristas create a warm, inviting space for you to come as you are, stay for a while, and leave as a friend. We love our customers and are always looking for creative ways to serve our community. From live music to holiday events, there is something for everyone at Elevate.”
