Children can visit with Santa and take home a photo for a nominal fee while enjoying holiday goodies. The Aquarium Gift Shop will remain open for holiday shopping with additional discounts. Coffee and cookies, gift boxes, and shipping will be available. Traditional family caroling with the Metro Musicians in the auditorium concludes this night.
