Take a selfie with Santa

 Santa Claus returns to Butler House this festive season and he is bringing his elves and toy soldiers with him. He will be there for four weekends, from November 26th to December 18th. 

If you come along between noon and six o'clock, you'll find Santa strolling along the paths of the Christmas Garden. He will pose for selfies and even invite you to climb onboard the sleigh to see what it feels like to be Santa on Christmas Eve.
