Sensory friendly visit with Santa

PUEBLO — A group of kids in Pueblo got to meet with Santa in a special way this weekend.

Designed for children with autism, the event was sensory friendly photo experience.

This is something that has been a need, according to some parents.

"I think it's awesome because not very many kids get to experience this and not many people understand that for them it's a totally different thing, that for them they can experience it in their own way," said Marla Micciche.

In addition to photos with Santa, the kids were also able to put together crafts and enjoy treats.
