Remember to bring your camera; this is sure to be a memory filled evening!

Bonfire 4-7pm
Visit with Santa 4-6pm
Sleigh Rides 4:30-6:30pm

Santa is excited to visit with the children again this year! We recommend arriving to the celebration 15 minutes early so you don’t miss his exciting arrival on a fire truck!
