We kick off of the 4-day Festival event in style with our premier event, the Gala of Giving. If you haven't attended this event, you are missing out! The decorations are over the top and Fleur de Lis Ranch will be transformed into a winter wonderland. Add to that the trees and wreaths decorated and donated for purchase during the event and you are literally surrounded by the holidays in every direction! A Gala ticket gains you access to an evening of fabulous food, beverage and the chance to bid on both live and silent auction items. If you attend once, you will want to come back every year!
Join us from 9:00 -11:00 am for Breakfast with Santa. The breakfast is free for kids and is proudly sponsored by Chobani, Clif Bar, Falls Brand, McDonalds, Meadow Gold, AGROPUR and prepared by Soran Catering. The guest of honor is none other than Santa Claus, be sure to let Santa know what you want for Christmas this year!
