Pajama Night will start that same evening at 6:30 p.m. with “Off to Neverland” for its theme. Families with children ages 2-8 are invited to wear their PJs for crafts, a scavenger hunt through ‘Neverland’ and songs and stories with Miss Tracie at the end of the evening. As with all Pajama Nights, guests are asked to bring something for the snack table whether it’s an easy bag of pretzels, a plate of fruit or homemade sweets.
