Visit with Santa

He’s making his list, and he’s checking it twice - Santa Claus is most definitely coming to town. While on-site visits with Santa will not take place during the open hours of the Holiday Festival of Lights, visits with Santa will be available during the daytime at James Island County Park by appointment only.  Register your family for Visits with Santa at James Island County Park!

Inclusive Santa Visit

People with disabilities and their families are invited to a photo session with Santa at James Island County Park. Photos will be taken at Park Center upstairs in Santa's Attic, which is accessible via an outdoor ramp. Join us to experience the time-honored tradition of a visit with Santa Claus during dedicated hours in a calming, subdued environment. Santa will be fluent in ASL (American Sign Language).

We are also excited to partner with KultureCity® for this event. To better accommodate guests with sensory difficulties, sensory bags equipped with noise-canceling headphones, fidget tools, and verbal cue cards will be available for guest use. A dedicated sensory space will also be available for guests who may feel overwhelmed by the environment. Ask our staff on-site for more information.
