Calling all kids and expert gingerbread house decorators! This is a gingerbread house decorating party you don’t want to miss.

Breakfast with Santa

Santa Claus and his reindeer are making a special trip to Cordillera Ranch just a few weeks before he and his elves get ready for the big day! He is stopping by to visit all the kiddos and ask them what they would like to get in their stockings and under the tree for Christmas! Be sure to dress in your holiday best as Santa will be taking photos with everyone. There will be singing and dancing to Christmas songs and, of course, a delicious breakfast crafted by Executive Chef Isaac Cantu and his culinary team. Plus, parents and grandparents can enjoy mimosas and live entertainment by Peter Gloria while the children make arts & crafts and reindeer food!
