    Of course, Santa always comes down from the North Pole to get away from the cold and pay Sandi a visit. In keeping with the times, Santa and Mrs. Claus are tucked into a snow globe, where everyone can safely take pictures. Children and families can stand outside of the globe for photos and text their greetings and wishes to Santa.

    The event is free to attend and photographs are available for purchase. Families are encouraged to RSVP in advance by reserving a ticket. To RSVP or for more information click here.
