Santa Claus is leaving his operations at the North Pole in the hands of his elves and making a special visit to Hattie Jane’s Creamery this Wednesday, Dec. 7 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. for an afternoon of festivities including photo opportunities and holiday treats!

The man in the red suit (Franklin native Pat Petty) will spend a couple of hours at our artisan ice cream shop in downtown Columbia, and the community is invited to stop by to have a photo taken with Santa and enjoy his favorite snack — Hattie Jane’s homemade cookies and milk provided by local Hatcher Family Dairy. We’ll have freshly brewed coffee on hand for the adults, too!

$25 at the door includes one photo with Santa, cookies and milk or coffee. Additional photos are $5 apiece, and both a digital and printed copy will be provided of each photo taken.

If you’ve already put in a good word with Santa this year, we’d still love for you to come by! We’ll be open during the event and serving our full menu– including our new winter flavors Peppermint Cocoa, I Heart Eggnog and non-alcoholic Mulled Wine sorbet!
