The holidays are a time of joy and family, fun and celebration, music and lights. However, for some this can be an overwhelming experience. Individuals with sensory overload issues have difficulty in social interactions around loud noises, crowds, and flashing lights.

We are pleased to share the events below that are all-inclusive to welcome every member. The hosts will either allow for registration to reduce crowds, keep lights and music to a minimum level, or be sensitive to individuals who may wish to visit with Santa from a distance.

We wish all our members a Happy Holidays no matter how they celebrate
