Santa and his band of merry elves did an amazing job rappeling from Center Ithaca. There's still time to meet Santa! Jolly Old Saint Nick is currently available for photos until 3 p.m. today in Center Ithaca. Rudolph is also in the Center spreading holiday cheer. In addition, many youth activities are available at the site.
