Memories Made & Shared!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to so many amazing people and organizations for making Family Plantation Christmas 2014 such a spectacular and memorable event for the guests to Historic Sotterley Plantation last Saturday! The day was bright, the mood was light, and the merriment so right! The first stop for many was Breakfast with Santa in our Historic Barn - a serious spread of delicious foods complete with the grand entrance by Santa and Mrs. Claus! The day continued with a horse-drawn carriage rides, tractor rides, pony rides, a petting zoo, a carol sing, crafts and face painting, letters to Santa, the Elves Mall, Santa's Secret Shop, a blacksmith demonstration, and more visits with the jolly old soul and his lovely wife.
