Embrace the holiday season with friends and family on December 9th at St. Patrick's Island! Winter fun and festivities will keep you toasty from noon-2PM, then cozy up for our movie (Smallfoot) at 2PM.

After challenging a friend to a curling match on our synthetic sheet and posing for a photo in our vintage holiday set-up, you can get warm by the huge crackling fire pits. You’ll get a chance to put in a good word with Santa for your Christmas wish list – the big guy will be stopping by for a visit from noon-2PM.

Stick around afterward for an exclusive outdoor showing of Smallfoot on our special daytime movie screen. The Amphitheatre has built-in seating, so we’d recommend bringing a thick seat cushion or propping up a lawn chair around the screen. Don’t forget to BYOB (Bring Your Own Blankets!)
