Come enjoy an afternoon with us drinking hot cocoa and seeing some of your favorite Christmas characters of all time. We will be handing out fun crafts you can do from home (while supplies last) and don't forget to bring those self-addressed letters to Santa telling him what you would like this Christmas season, and he just might write you back! The first 50 cars to show up decorated for the holidays will receive a special prize!
