Elf Field Day

Mrs. Claus needs help deciding which animals were naughty or nice this year at Santa's Little Helpers interactive tour at Flamingo Gardens in Davie this month. Then afterward, help Santa and his elves pass out gifts. While you're there, check out the beautiful flocks of pink flamingos and exotic tortoises. Kids can join in the fun starting at 2 p.m. Sunday with Santa's Snow Mound and holiday crafts-making projects. Later, help Mrs. Claus determine which animals were good this year and which were naughty. Stick around till 4 p.m. to help Santa pass out presents to the good animals. The Garden of Lights Show will finish off the evening from 5 to 7. Admission to Santa's Little Helpers and Garden of Lights is $18 for those 12 and up, $10 for those age 4 to 11, and free for age 3 and under. Free for members, of course. A ride on a fully narrated tram tour is available for an extra $4 for adults, $3 for kids 4 to 11. Members of Flamingo Gardens and kids 3 and under ride for free. For the lights show after 5 p.m., the cost is only $5 per person. Flamingo Gardens is located at 3750 S. Flamingo Road in Davie.
