Free Community Event Offers Indoor Winter Wonderland to Families

FloraCraft®, the world’s leading manufacturer of foam floral and craft products, will host its 8th annual Santa’s Workshop at its Ludington headquarters.

On Saturday, Dec. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., community members are invited to visit FloraCraft, 1 W. Longfellow Place, for a day of Christmas crafting, holiday games, stories with Mrs. Claus, hot chocolate, horse drawn wagon rides and pictures with Santa.

Last year, more than 300 children and families visited Santa’s Workshop.

“The Ludington community is very important to FloraCraft and we always look forward to any opportunity to interact with the great people of our hometown,” said CEO Eric Erwin. “Each year this event continues to grow, and our team is determined to make this year’s Santa’s workshop bigger than ever. We hope everyone will join us once again this holiday season.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, offers children an opportunity to explore their creativity while building excitement for the holiday season. Activities include:

  • A special visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus
  • Craft stations where kids can make fun holiday projects to take with them
  • A letter writing station with a direct-drop to the North Pole
  • Horse-drawn wagon rides provided by Soberalski Farm’s Draft Horses
  • Cookies made from Mrs. Claus’ kitchen
  • Hot chocolate provided by Pioneer Church
  • Holiday Games

Additionally, the first 500 children to attend will receive a special gift.

“As a family-owned business, it is rewarding to see families in our community come together under our roof,” Erwin said. “We hope Santa’s Workshop continues to bring as much joy to others as it does for our team.”
