Experience the magic of the season among thousands of LED lights illuminating Centerra as Santa and Mrs. Claus return for the holidays.

Santa and his elves are setting up his Workshop at The Group, Inc., 5401 Stone Creek Circle, located in Centerra for the first three Saturdays in December.

Jolly Ole Saint Nick is eager to hear all the wishes of those who were naughty and nice, and Mrs. Claus is preparing her storytelling and a fun craft activity work station. Santa’s helpers will park his sleigh and help capture those special holiday moments for families, with free printed photos courtesy of Kodak available to each guest.

While Santa collects wishes, fresh baked cookies, complimentary ornament decorating, a coloring contest, and story time for all the little boys and girls will be offered. When it’s time for some fresh air, families can head outside for hot cocoa and enjoy complimentary horse drawn wagon rides. The Thompson Valley High School Band will also be performing from 1 – 2 p.m. on all three Saturdays.
