HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Many families across the Tennessee Valley are visiting Santa Claus this month. Sometimes that trip to the mall is just too much for children, especially those with autism.
That's why the Sensory-friendly Santa Claus came back to the Tennessee Valley.
Sensory Santa is a unique experience for children with special needs and their families. The event gives children with autism a chance to visit with Santa Claus, which might be difficult for them otherwise.
Sensory-friendly Santa took place at the meeting house at the Village of Providence Sunday from 1:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M.
Tickets for Sensory Santa were free for families.
There were professional photographers, snacks, and presents for all children at the event.
The event is put on by Kulture City, a non-profit organization that works to create a world where those with autism are accepted, included, and can fulfill their potential. With the success of this event, Kulture City plans to bring even more sensory-friendly events to Huntsville.
