Children are invited to Brucemore for a festive and memorable evening of holiday tradition—Santa, Snacks and Stories on Sunday, December 4 and Tuesday, December 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The mansion’s holiday décor and the estate’s seasonal spirit add to the evening’s activities. In the Visitor Center, children will be delighted by two new activities: sing-a-long caroling with Brucemore’s most famous resident, Leo the Lion, and a cookie decorating station. In the mansion, children will make reindeer hats, listen to a holiday story, and give Santa their wish-lists. In between activities, children and parents are invited to freely roam the mansion and ask any questions to the available stationary guides.

Admission is $7 per child and $5 per child of a Brucemore member. One adult is free per child admission; each additional adult is $5.  Space is limited. Call (319) 362-7375 for reservations. For further information or to register online, visit Santa, Snacks, and Stories is sponsored by US Bank.
