"Santa's Magic" returns to Omaha Children's Museum on Friday and kicks off a busy season of events at the museum.
Members of the Omaha Fire Department will take part in Santa's arrival at the museum, bringing along a fire truck to escort him down 20th Street. Santa and the fire department will arrive at 10 a.m. on Friday.
"Santa's Magic" is an annual interactive show that runs Nov. 23 through Dec. 23, with multiple show times every day the museum is open. The show includes indoor snowfall and characters like elves, the Snow Queen and Snow King.
At the end of each show, children will be able to talk one-on-one with Santa and get their picture taken with him. Part of the special experience is that Santa "magically" knows each child's name. New in 2018 is a special meet and greet the last half-hour of the day.
This is an opportunity to share wish lists and take pictures with Santa, but does not include the show. "Santa's Magic" and the meet and greet are included with museum admission.
The museum is offering a discount to guests who support the Shine The Light On Hunger campaign sponsored by ConAgra Brands Foundation. Families may receive up to $12 off admission by donating non-perishable food items. Receive $1 off per food item donated, to a maximum of $2 per guest or $12 per family or group.
