We hosted this event for the first time last December and it was a BIG hit! It's not just a photo "OP" with Santa, it's a "Santa Experience" your little ones won't forget. Santa will tell the Christmas story; Elves will serve breakfast; every family will have their time with Santa; plus families will get to build their own nativity to take home with them. Our professional photographer will capture your family time with Santa, and have your photo available within 24-48 hours for download in our online gallery, right here at It's all included in the ticket price!

Seats are available for $15 (Adult) and $10 (Child 3-10 yrs old). Children 2 yrs old and younger are free. Advanced purchase is required but the seats are yours to fill with whoever you'd like to invite!
