Sensory Santa at Westport House

December 7, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On December 7th from 3-8pm, Westport House will host our annual Sensory Santa session at Winter Wonderland. For those children with autism and sensory disorders, we set aside some time where families can relax and enjoy a magical Christmas experience.

We turn up the lights and tone down the Christmas tunes. Santa will meet with families individually rather than arranging group visits with multiple families. Siblings are also welcome to join in the festive fun too!

Aside from meeting the big man, there’s lots to do! Visit our live crib on the front lawn, Enjoy story-time with Mrs Claus,Take part in the “Make your own yuletide log” workshop, ginger break decorating, face painting, and complimentary drinks!  And don’t forget the Westport Train which is a big hit too.
