The Arboretum of South Barrington has a HUGE announcement this holiday season. For the first time ever, they’ll be hosting Santa visits with children ALL SEASON LONG, starting with his grand entrance during the Arboretum’s annual Holiday Festival & celebration coming up on November 11th!

Presented by Mooney Lyons Financial Services for the second year in a row, The Arb’s Holiday Festival is a day of fun family activities. At 11 a.m. sharp, they’ll be welcoming Santa on a fire truck with a parade around the mall, Santa story time and the official season opening of the Arboretum on Ice outdoor skating rink. SURPRISE… This year Santa will be at The Arboretum of South Barrington all season long to take pictures with families. You’ll find him at his holiday home all season between LOFT and Sur La Table. CLICK HERE for the 2017 Pictures with Santa schedule.

By the way, Santa will be reading a story from the fire truck after his arrival and before the photos begin. The first 50 families in line at the end of Santa’s parade route will receive a free 5’x7′ picture with St. Nick! Santa photos are presented by Sweet Baby Rays Catering.
