  1. The Sanitizing Experts at FIKES will be providing a regular and state-of-the-art disinfectant service that effectively coats and protects all surfaces in the building making anything you touch inhospitable to harmful microbes!

  5. Face masks required – families/members of the same household can take them off once posed for the quick photo. We know that people have lots of opinions and feelings about wearing masks -- trust us, we get it! But we are big fans of following the law so please help us help you and please be kind to our staff and please, please -- make Santa proud by just going along with the whole mask thing regardless of your personal beliefs. Thank you!

  6. Photographer will always wear a facemask and will be in an area separated from families

  7. ​Santa is behind the wall of the Santa house and will be standing right behind plexiglass in the doorway so he won't need to wear a mask! Please be sure to speak loudly so Santa can hear your sweet wishes and messages!
