Trying on Santa 2019

What would it be like to walk in Santa’s boots? Or to prepare for such a long flight around the world? Santa has a study?

TRYING ON SANTA is a magical holiday experience for families at the Pomerene Center… a chance to spend a little personal time with Santa without commercial overload.  “Trying on Santa has become our favorite family Christmas tradition! Every part of the evening is magical – for the kids and the parents. Possibly my favorite part is the anticipation when the kids knock on the door to Santa’s study, holding a plate of cookies they specially selected for him….followed by the joy when Santa opens the door to welcome them inside.”  Amy N.


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. Add a professional photo shoot.

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.

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.

Holiday photo shoots. Your photographer will greet you on the front porch as you arrive for a formal family portrait and then follow you to SANTA’S DRESSING ROOM to capture candid shots of your family at play. Within the week you’ll receive a CD of holiday photos for you to share with friends and family. Our photographers know the Pomerene Center well and will capture unique pictures of you and your family in our unparalleled historic home decked for the holiday. Rather than feeling the pressure to capture the moment, you’ll be free to play with your family. This 20 minute professional shoot will be well worth your dollars! If you want to take advantage of this offer let us know at the time you schedule your visit.
