Magicians, jugglers, storytellers are hired by Mariah Carey and her husband to entertain the Colorado children at the Aspen Recreation Center.

Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon have been in Aspen for a few days. Beside enjoying a vacation, they also spare their time to give back to the community. On Monday afternoon, December 21, the couple held a holiday party for 35 Colorado underprivileged children at a rented Aspen Recreation Center.

At the amusement spot, the kids who are between the ages of 9 and 12 enjoyed wall climbing, swimming and ice-skating. They were also treated with performances from magicians, jugglers as well as storytellers and got a visit from bearded Santa Claus who arrived on a sleigh pulled by reindeer with Mariah and Nick by his side.

"It was all about the kids. Many of these kids haven't been out of Denver. A lot of them haven't been in the mountains," Jude Liguori-Oliver, child protective services administrator for the City and County of Denver, told The Aspen Times. On the children's reaction when Mariah and Nick brought the Santa, Jude stated, "As soon as she got off the sleigh, they started screaming, 'Mariah! Mariah! Mariah!' "

A keepsake for the children moreover, Mariah hired professional photographer to take a picture of each child with her, Nick and the Santa. Also, it is believed that the singer played the kids holiday films on the bus during their way back to Denver.

Mariah Carey is a regular visitor of Aspen around the holidays. According to The Aspen Times, this is not the first time she threw party for the underprivileged kids as she has been hosting such events for about 10 years.
