Second Annual Cookies with Santa: An Event Recap

We are extremely thankful to our sponsors, as it is their generosity and support that allows our events to take place.

Colorado Springs Moms Blog held our second annual Cookies with Santa event on Sunday, December 9th at Rocky Mountain PBS.

Families joined us for this festive event and enjoyed a professional photo taken with Santa (& a chance to meet Mrs. Claus, too!), dessert, hot cocoa and coffee, live Christmas music entertainment, holiday themed activities and crafts for the children, letters to Santa and sugar cookie decorating!

The Venue :: Rocky Mountain PBS

Rocky Mountain PBS graciously opened the doors of their downtown location, the Tim Gill Center for Public Media on a Sunday afternoon to host all the wonderful families in attendance. It was the perfect venue to celebrate the holidays. Rocky Mountain PBS staff were also on site sharing in on the fun and educating all the guests about holidays around the world with PBS KIDS new series “Let’s Go Luna.” 


We are extremely thankful to our sponsors, as it is their generosity and support that allows our events to take place!


Over a million Coloradans turn to Rocky Mountain PBS to discover provocative and inspiring local, national and international programming; find diverse viewpoints; score front row center seats to world-class performances; and experience lifelong learning opportunities every month.
