Cookies with Santa

December 9th, 2023 — 9:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M.
Ushers Ferry

Presented by Mercy Birthplace & NICU, Mercy Pediatric Clinic, and Mercy Pediatric Inpatient Center

Cedar Rapids Moms have caught wind of some jolly news: SANTA is swapping the North Pole for Cedar Rapids! Bundle up the kiddos and join us for a merry Cookies With Santa at Ushers Ferry on December 9th, 2023, starting at 9:00 a.m.

A jolly shoutout to our merry and bright presenting sponsors, Mercy Birthplace & NICU, Mercy Pediatric Clinic, and Mercy Pediatric Inpatient Center, for making this magical event possible. Your little ones can meet the big man himself, Santa Claus, and get their hands (and faces) sticky with cookie decorating. Plus, there’ll be a fantastic local business shopping spree to check off your holiday gift list. 🎁

Pro tip: Capture the joy with professional photos of your kids and Santa, by selecting the “add-on” from our talented Cedar Rapids Moms photographer, Jess Denton, owner of monroe+co. These precious snaps will be emailed to you within a week, just in time for those ‘deer’ holiday cards! 📸🦌 (Available as an add-on to your tickets for an additional cost!)

But wait, like the last gingerbread cookie on the plate or that mysterious missing sock on laundry day; tickets are limited and expected to vanish faster than a plate of Santa’s cookies on Christmas Eve. So, grab your tickets now and don’t delay 🎟️🔔
