LIMA – The Lima Mall will be hosting a “Sensitive Santa” for children with special needs from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2.
During the event adjustments are made to reduce sensory stimuli, including muted lights, music and wait times for Santa. There will be special activity tables and the Welcome Waggers Therapy Dogs from Mercy Health will also be available for children to relax with before visiting Santa. Snacks and a craft will be provided.
The event is free to attend. Santa photo packages will be available for purchase. Each family or group is asked to RSVP in advance by reserving one ticket. To learn more or to reserve a time, visit LimaMall.com.
“Visiting Santa Claus is one of the most joyous holiday experiences of the season for young children and their families. It’s important to Lima Mall that children of all ages and abilities have the opportunity to meet Santa,” said Betsy Billingsley, marketing director at Lima Mall said.
