Patti’s Santa tradition will continue for 2020, but with somewhat of a different look to follow social distancing guidelines.

Santa will sit behind a plexiglass barrier, and children will be able to take a photo with Santa by standing in front of the plexiglas stand. Mrs. Claus will be joining him, and she will be wearing a mask. ANYONE standing in Patti’s socially distanced line for pictures with Santa, will be required to be masked.

Due to Covid-19 the schedule will be limited to the following dates. This was a very hard decision to make. Patti’s could not imagine our sweet, little guests not being able to enjoy a little bit of a Patti’s Holiday tradition. We look forward to seeing all of you!
