If you loved the The Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center's (JDCAC) annual Polar Express, you will LOVE the Ho Ho Ho Hike and Holiday Celebration. The JDCAC and the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center will be joining forces this year to present this festive event. This event will take the place of this year's Polar Express.

Children of all ages are invited to this Holiday Celebration on December 3 from 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center. The Preserve will be turned into a Winter Wonderland, full of nature-themed crafts, performances, cookies, hot chocolate and a visit from Mrs. Claus. This event will also include the traditional Ho Ho Ho Hike, a unique and fun "Santa-hunt" where you will hike the Preserve looking for the elusive visitor in red, meeting many of nature's creatures along the way. Wear your comfortable walking shoes and come celebrate the holiday season with the Clauses!

The cost is $15 per person (adults must have a ticket and children must be accompanied by an adult); children under the age of 24 months are FREE with the purchase of an adult ticket. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
