TREC the Halls by Chris Sexauer
The Tom Ridge Environmental Center

Are you ready for the holiday season? Perhaps you should head over to the Tom Ridge Environmental Center this Saturday, Dec. 6 to catch some of the holiday spirit.

The fun-filled day of wintery cheer will start at 10 a.m. with a breakfast buffet. Everyone’s favorite jolly elf, Santa, will even be there. After that, Santa will be available for visiting from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can also enjoy 11 different activity stations, including live animals, a bean bag toss, holiday decoration crafting, snowman building, bird feeder making, cookie decorating, a bubble machine, and much more, with activities going from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

There will also be a special holiday movie playing at the Big Green Screen Theatre, free of charge. Seats are on a first-come, first-serve basis, so make sure to get there early. The movie will be showing at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m.

So hop on your sled, strap on your snowshoes, or fire up your snowmobile and head down to the Tome Ridge Environmental Center on Dec. 6 for a winter wonderland experience that’s fun for the whole family. For breakfast reservations, call the Sunset Café at 833.5843. For any other questions, call TREC at 833.7424 Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sponsors for this event include Tamarack Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, Erie Zoo, Erie Kiwanis Club, and The Children’s Museum.
