This Christmas season, Rochester Mom is creating a very special experience for you and your families all December long.
First Alliance Credit Union and Rochester Mom are pleased to present: Ho-Ho-Home with Santa: A RochMN Holiday Experience. This virtual event will take you along on a journey to visit our very own Santa at the North Pole. He’ll show you all around and even tell you all about what he does on his days off!
Families will also have a chance to receive a letter from Santa himself! In addition, there will be activities, giveaways, demonstrations, music, pop-up sing-a-longs, swag, special and exclusive content, crafts, and more for the month leading up to Christmas.
