Meet Santa Claus and have your picture taken, drink hot chocolate and eat free cookies. Admission for this event: $10 Adults ($8 members), $5 Children (ages 3-12), under age three is free. And back by popular demand is our Calusa Campfire! What better way to celebrate the season than hot chocolate and cookies by the fire!
The theme for this year is slightly different! Bored with the same holiday theme year after year………..
