December | Santa Zip and Sip
Ho! Ho! Ho! Santa has arrived at eXplore Brown County, ready to zip with your family and find out if you’ve been naughty or nice! Santa loves to share the beauty of the winter landscape in the Brown County hardwoods forest. The terrain looks so different, the vista opens and you can see for miles as there is no foliage to obstruct your vision. Perhaps if you are lucky, you may catch a few snowflakes as you soar 90’ in the air across the frozen lake.
Santa will investigate with you the winter life of the forest. Who is sleeping the winter away and who is up foraging the woods? Take photos with Santa, sit on his lap and tell him what you are dreaming of for the holidays. Santa will end the tour with a cup of hot cocoa in the nice warm Harvest Hall. Don’t forget the marshmallows!
