The day will be happy and bright with a deluxe hot cocoa bar, jumbo sugar cookie decorating, and a station to write letters to the North Pole. The magic wouldn’t be complete without our guest of honor: Santa Claus! He’ll be spreading seasonal cheer with storytime and photo opportunities. Kids will also enjoy a guest appearance Sprinkles the Elf!

This festive event is geared towards children ages 3–7.

Cost: $20 per child with accompanying adult.
