Looking for a way to ring in the holiday season with the whole furry family? Put Dec. 14 on your calendar, snap on those bells, and get ready for Santa Paws at Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Baltimore.

The fifth annual Santa Paws event will feature pet photos with Santa in the hotel lobby, which will be transformed into a winter wonderland complete with pet-friendly holiday treats, festive decorations, and Santa and Mrs. Claus, straight from the North Pole. Keepsake photos will be available for $20, and all proceeds benefit Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS).

In keeping with the holiday spirit, guests are welcome to bring their own cameras and snap away as much as they’d like.

Santa Paws is scheduled for December 14 from 2 to 4 p.m. at 2 N. Charles Street. All Kimpton hotels, by the way, welcome pets of all sizes and breeds at no extra charge, offering in-room pet beds on request along with food and water bowls and lists of local pet-friendly attractions.
