For four festive nights, Santa and his elves will be taking a break from their holiday preparations to host a special meal at Botanica: Supper with Santa. Children can discover surprises in their stockings, decorate a cookie with Santa’s elves, enjoy stories of the season, enjoy arts and crafts, join in a few holiday songs and share their wishes with Santa Claus. We will also have Frosty the Snowman serve custard from Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers after storytime with Santa.
After dinner, families can walk through the gardens and take in the wondrous lights of Illuminations. Follow the trains around the Sensory Garden, watch the lights dance to music in the Meadow, take a stroll through Candy Cane Lane and enjoy the beauty of more than 7,000 luminaries in the gardens and millions of lights throughout, including the Downing Children’s Garden. Be sure to bring your cameras, appetites and holiday spirit!
