The Bristol Press – Indian Rock Nature Preserve to host Santa’s Walking Wonderland
BRISTOL – Kids will be able to visit Santa at Indian Rock Nature Preserve this Friday through December 12 at their Santa’s Walking Wonderland event.
Santa’s Walking Wonderland will offer children the chance to visit with Santa, sing Christmas carols, buy s’mores, and sample hot chocolate and cookies while strolling through the illuminated farmhouse at 501 Wolcott Road of Christmas lights. No photographer will be on site, so families are encouraged to bring their own cameras to “capture the magic”.
Scott Heth, director of the Connecticut Environmental Learning Centers (ELCCT), which includes Indian Rock Nature Preserve and Barnes Nature Center, said he was eager to provide a fun vacation for the community.
“We are really looking forward to providing this unique family opportunity,” said Heth. “It’s a great opportunity for the children to see Santa Claus in a beautiful setting. ”
Proceeds from this event will benefit ELCCT’s education programs at Indian Rock Nature Preserve and Barnes Nature Center.
