Kids can meet the legendary elf himself while parents can capture some amazing photos in the interior of a warm, fire-lit farmhouse at this special event that rings in the holiday season with style. Held at the Island Farm in Roanoke Island, this afternoon Meet and Greet with Santa will be a treat for family members of all ages, with tons of activities and beautiful seasonal displays to put everyone in a holiday mood.

St. Nicholas himself will arrive at the Island Farm – (one of Manteo’s favorite historic attractions) – at noon by an ox-drawn carriage. Once he has landed at the site, kids can visit with St. Nick in front of the fire at the on-site farmhouse, with photographs available to download online soon after his visit. In addition to the special one-day-only visit by Santa Claus, visitors can also enjoy an ox-drawn wagon ride around the farm’s trails in the early afternoon hours, and can enjoy piping hot cider and ginger cookies at the visitors center before exploring the scenic and seasonal farm. Fun for family members of all ages, this unique event captures the beauty of the Island Farm as well as the celebratory appearance of St. Nicholas to create an afternoon that visitors of all ages will adore.
