The evening began at 6:00 p.m on Thursday, December 13, 2012 featuring a strolling dinner by Panera, Sheshco, Buffalo Wild Wings, Afternoon Delight Catering, Melting Pot, Coldstone Creamery, Starbucks and Noodles and Company.
Through the Hobbit doorway, guests were greeted by live Celtic-inspired music by “Peat in the Creel”. After dinner folks spent their time petting John Ball Traveling Zoo’s “mystical creatures” and getting their photo taken in front of a green screen photographs. Attendees were able to see the long awaited film The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey before anyone else. The live auction included a VIP Film package from Celebration and a Safari Trip to South Africa.
