EarlyWorks Announces 2021 Holiday Event
Nights of Santa Returns for 11 Magical Nights in December

Decatur, Ala. – Nights of Santa is set to return to EarlyWorks Children’s Museum next month, bringing with it all the magic of the holiday season while keeping safety protocols in place. From Monday, December 13 through Thursday, December 23, 2021, children are invited to visit with Santa Claus and to enjoy an immersive holiday experience in downtown Huntsville.  

During Nights of Santa, the jolly old elf himself will be on hand each night to listen to children as they share their wish lists. To ensure the safety of everyone Santa will visit with children while being protected by Santa’s magic snow globe.  

No visit to Santa would be complete without meeting his North Pole elves. Additional family-friendly activities adding to the whimsical fun include nightly snowfalls, making holiday crafts, a holiday themed experiment in the all-new Tinker Lab, mingling with costumed characters like the Grinch and Olaf, decorating a fresh made gingerbread cookie, mailing letters to Santa and shopping in Santa’s gift shop. Kids will have plenty of room to play and enjoy the spirit of the season.

A limited number of tickets for the event will be offered online and will adhere to EarlyWorks safety protocols. This will be a timed entry, limited capacity event to ensure the safety and comfort of all involved. Holding the multi-night event inside the EarlyWorks Children’s Museum will not only provide a safe environment but will also allow visitors to enjoy all that the museum has to offer.

Nights of Santa will be held nightly Monday, December 13 through Thursday, December 23 starting at 5 p.m. on weeknights and 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. All tickets must be pre-purchased online at Cost for Nights of Santa is $12 per person for the general public and $10 per person for members. Admission is free for children under one year old.
