“Talking Hands,” a signing group of students from Lakeland High School, will also be at the event to perform holiday carols using American Sign Language.
Dressed as the Snow Queen from the “Nutcracker,” Richmond Ballet dancer Lauren Archer will also communicate with the kids using ASL. Archer learned sign language when her family adopted her younger brother, who is deaf.
Every child who attends the event will enjoy snacks, face painting and crafts.
