St. Nick made an early stop in the Sioux Empire for the Great Plains Zoo's "Cookies With Santa."
Hundreds of children attended the event at the zoo, where they could listen to carolers,
decorate cookies and write their wish lists.
They also had the opportunity to take pictures with Santa. Zoo keepers talked to the kids about the zoo's reindeer and even showed those who were adventurous enough to step outside.
"It's fun to tie in the holiday spirit and see some of those animals as well," said Great Plains Zoo Education Services Manager, Leigh Spencer.
This was the first ever "Cookies With Santa" event. The event was free with a zoo membership or paid zoo admission.
