Gather your kiddos, don your favorite holiday garb and prance on over to The Paine from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 16 or 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 17 for the Free Kids Days at the Nutcracker. Children 17 and under will enjoy free admission (maximum of five children per one paid adult admission) and a self-guided tour of Nutcracker in the Castle. Make the holiday season extra bright for a family in need by bringing a new, unwrapped toy for your kids to place under the Christmas tree. All toys collected on November 16 and 17 will be donated to Toys for Tots and given to families right here in our community.

To make your season extra jolly, there will be a professional photographer available on Friday and Saturday to capture your family photo free of charge (thanks to yours truly, Verve). Once you have your photo taken, you’ll receive information on how to view and download it. Getting a family photo taken for your holiday card is that easy, and it’s FREE.

Plus, the Sugar Plum Fairy’s Cupcake Café will be stocked full of delightful baked goods from Tamara–The Cake Guru from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 16 and from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 17.

The best part of the evening? Community.

We’re proud to sponsor the Free Kids Days at Nutcracker in the Castle because we know that when we invest time in our communities, we make them a better—and more fun—place to live, work and worship. We love seeing communities coming together to enjoy an immersive holiday experience.
