Due to an overwhelming demand for pictures with your four-legged babies, we’ve added a second Pet Night to Santa’s schedule this year. Pet Night features personal appointments with Santa at Rhodes Hall for your pets. As long as your pets are friendly and well behaved, they’re invited! Both children and pets are allowed in pictures. This is a pets-required event, so guests without pets should reserve a regular Santa appointment. Pet Night is $40 per family. All proceeds benefit the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.
