Come check out the Christms Event of the season that benefits a charity for the fourth year in a row at The Blue Barn Venue located in Columbia, TN. Dates for this event are December 9th, 10th, and 11th. Tickets are $40 per child and allows the child to enter into Santa's Snow Shop to participate in an hour of fun. All ticket activities are for children only, but parents may accompany their child throughout the duration of the class. We will have freshly cooked pancakes for children to top with various yummy toppings for our morning classes and Christmas shaped cookies to decorate with icing and sprinkles for our afternoon classes. A new addition that is included within your child's ticket is a train -- with unlimited train rides. Children will be making a simple craft to take home with them. Also, included in your child's ticket will be a letter to Santa. Oh, and don't forget, pictures with the main man himself, Santa Claus! Each ticket will include one digital photo of your child that you will receive via an online gallery. This ticket will also include entry to a pavilion where your child will be able to enjoy the bounce houses! This year we are happy to donate a portion of the ticket proceeds to Kids Place.

Santa photos are limited to children only - no adults as this is an event for children. Cameras are permitted but will not disrupt the photographers duties. The photographer will be warm and welcoming with children to help he or she feel comfortable with Santa, however, the photographer will not be held responsible for children who do not wish to participate accordingly, (examples: screaming, crying, refusing to sit with Santa, refusing to smile, etc.). Thank you for your cooperation and we really do hope that all children enjoy their time with Santa.
