Ho-Ho Hoedown launched the holiday season

December 9th was a magical evening at Starkey Ranch as we threw our first Ho-Ho Hoedown for about 1,500 guests. Santa arrived by golf cart and was joined by The Grinch, Anna and Elsa, and a very tall and lovely elf. Snowflakes and music by Late Night Brass filled the crisp air at Whitfield Park, while kids enjoyed holiday-themed bounce houses and face painting.

The following week, our residents got a private meet-and-greet event with Santa and Mrs. Claus at our annual “Cookies with the Clauses” event at the Welcome Center. Santa was available for photos and conversation, and Mrs. Claus delighted the crowd with fresh-baked cookies and desserts.
