During the Workshop, children can create holiday arts and crafts, play fun games, watch holiday movies, and write letters to Santa. Outdoor activities include performances by local schools, games, a bounce house, holiday activities and more.
“The Children’s Workshop has become a big part of the Festival,” says Charissa Comerota, who oversees the Children’s Workshop. “It is so wonderful to see families return year after year. It’s become a holiday tradition.”
The Children’s Workshop is open 10:00a.m.-6:
“We are so happy to be having our Santa back at the Family Fun Day,” says Comerota. “He is truly an authentic Santa.”
Pictures with Santa are $5 with package options available.
The Children’s Workshop is $6 per child, Brunch with Santa is $12, or participate in both for $15. Admission to just view the trees is $2.00 for visitors ages 12 and up.
The Festival of Trees showcases over 20 lavishly decorated trees, designed by businesses and individuals in the community.
Last year, the Festival of Trees and Tux & Trees Gala raised $93,000 to support The Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation. The Foundation supports Goodwill’s mission of helping people in the Southwest Florida community by providing life-changing opportunities to employment and independence.
