Favorite Fly-In South of the North Pole!

You never know who's going to stop by at the Gardens! Today, a nearly full house was treated to Santa and Christmas Carol's lunch stop. The lively chatter dropped to a whisper when Santa was spied, and true to his generous nature, stopped at each table and greeted our customers. Santa seemed to be on a running theme from suit to menu: red, red, red...beets, roasted red bell peppers topped off with a Baklava sundae.
