There is no fee to visit Santa. Families are invited to take their own photos. Children also can make holiday cards that will go to the pediatric patients at St. John Hospital. Santa’s Helpers also will collect donations of arts and crafts materials, toys, stuffed animals and board games that will go to the Pediatric Activities Room at Ascension St. John Children’s Hospital. Santa’s Village decor is provided by Bishop Design & Display.
