Looking to get your kids’ pictures taken with Santa this year for a decent price? We are calling this the best kept secret in Wichita this December because for only $15 each child gets storytime, a professional 5×7 photo, and a delicious cookie from the bakery. Instead of waiting in a long line, you can sit back and relax on the sidelines with a cup of coffee while your child enjoys their time with Santa. A professional 5×7 picture will be done by Captured Moments Photography and delivered to your door a couple weeks before Christmas! Other photo packages are available, including a picture ornament of your child with Santa. Also, if you have a special needs child or know of someone who does, this Santa has experience with special needs kids so if parents are looking for a welcoming spot that doesn’t have long lines and has a decent price, they should check it out! It’s all happening on Saturday, December 9 from 10am-2pm. No reservations required. Storytime will be at 10am. Start a new tradition in your family and come make some awesome memories with us! See you there!
