“There will be fun crafts for kids, balloon animals, free face painting, a model train and lots of animals.”

Attendees can see snakes with the Live Snake Education Experience, visit with therapy dogs and learn how they help people and see the Stable Spirit Horses outside in their holiday best.

Families and supporters will have the option to buy snacks and ice cream treats from Laura & Abe’s Ice Cream Truck.

There is also a FREE picture with Santa, but watch out for the Grinch, who will also be in attendance.
