Upcoming Public Events

Lunch with the Clauses

It’s a Janesville Christmas tradition! This year, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be arriving at the Janesville Riviera-Roose Events Center at 11am, escorted by the Janesville Fire Department. They’ll be at the center until 1pm, getting everybody’s Christmas lists, and taking photos. Kids will each receive a gift bag as they leave, and there will be plenty of other holiday fun as well.

Lunch (Riv-Rite or Riv-Dog, chips, cookie & a drink) will be served for a free-will donation benefitting the Riviera-Roose Events Center.
