Ho! Ho! Ho! Holidays! At The Discovery Center

December 5 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


The elves have been busy scurrying around The Discovery Center getting ready for Santa’s Workshop.  Holiday decorations will be going up soon so mark your calendar to visit us during the holiday season.  Our “Village of Gingerbread – Our Home is Our Castle” exhibit will also open with gingerbread houses made by community members.  We are still in need of submissions! Please visit our website for more information and to submit your creation at https://thediscoverycenter.org/.  Creators will receive a free pass to the museum to view their creations on display.  Opening day is December 5, 2020 and of course, Santa Claus will arrive from the North Pole!  Children will be able to visit with Santa in a socially distant manner both inside and out.  The Story Garden* will be decked out in holiday cheer and Santa’s Workshop will display how toys are made.

Although this year there won’t be Breakfast with Santa, the Reindeer have stepped up to make lunch possible!  In order to keep everyone safe and healthy, no food will be served inside The Discovery Center but, we are offering a Fly Away Reindeer Bagged Lunch for Drive Thru or Pick-Up.  In collaboration with The South City Publick House we will be supplying Adult Boxed Lunches for $14.00 with a choice of Ham, Turkey or Tuna Salad.  Kid’s Boxed Lunches are available for $10.00 with Peanut Butter and Strawberry Jelly.  All lunches come with chips, a cookie, bottled water, condiments, and a special treat for our Reindeer friends on Christmas Eve. This fundraiser not only supports The Discovery Center, it also gives you the ability to support another Southside local business.

Make your reservations and bagged lunch purchases now for this special day.   Two sessions are available to attend 11:00 am to 1:00 pm or 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.   Reservations are required.

*Please note – The Story Garden will be closed to the public on December 5, 2020.
