You’ve been asking and here’s your answer!

Santa Claus is coming to town! πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Join us for Brunch with Santa each weekend until Christmas.  Tickets must be purchased online and include brunch 🍴, crafts and activities 🎨, a CGO Express train ride (weather permitting) πŸš‚, and of course...SANTA! πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Being safe is a gift we can all give each other this year, so Santa (masked) will be in the chair while children (masked) share their wishes with him from the straw bales behind the picket fence. Elves will help monitor the timing so that each child/family gets their best-that-2020-can-offer photo op πŸ“· with Santa. 

Tickets are limited for each time slot.

It was the laughter, the smiles, seeing your family hand in hand, the joy that was spread this season that fills us with so much gratitude. 
We at CGO are so grateful for our staff who came up with creative and adapting ideas then put more than πŸ’― effort into it. 
And you! Thank you! For your support, feedback and ideas so we can better provide the space for running, jumping, picking, laughing, playing and of course, eating! 
We hope the joy sustains you and your loved ones and you too feel the gratitude with memories that last a lifetime!
