Did you ever wonder what it would be like to stand in the boots of Santa Claus? You and your family can find out at the Pomerene Center! TRYING ON SANTA will bring Santa “at home” to life through interactive experiences that are fun for both parents and children alike. Personal elves will guide families through the rooms of the Pomerene Center with a different themed activity in each room. There will be a professional photographer available for festive family photos if you choose to have your holiday pictures taken right here at the Center.

SANTA’S DRESSING ROOM
The ultimate holiday dress up experience. Consider the pleasure of clomping on old wooden floors in Santa’s big boots. Imagine the joy of pulling on a pair of his bright red pants and the silliness of trying to figure out how many siblings can fit inside his coat! There’s sure to be lots of giggling and looking in the mirror.
A ROOM FULL OF ELVES (Santa’s Workshop…not hard to imagine what happens in here!) Everyone will roll up their sleeves, put on an apron and join in the toy-making. You’ll take home what you make—what a great gift to stuff in someone’s stocking.
TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
(Santa’s Study)To wrap up the visit you’ll enjoy illustrations of the poem TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS by local artists before joining Santa himself. We expect he’ll be deep in the planning mode for his night-before-Christmas trip! You can find your house on his maps and help him plan his magical flight path.
