Now through December 31.

 Once upon a time, an enchanted forest intrigued children and adults alike and brought magic to the holiday season. Teddy bears beckon, elves are busy at work, penguins play in the snow, while Santa waits to hear holiday wishes. This fairy tale-like forest of glittering lights will dazzle the young and young-at-heart. Santa returns to the North Pole Christmas Eve, last chance to see him is Wednesday, December 24, 9AM-5PM (no tickets sold after 4:30PM).

Pictures with Santa: Photo packages $10 - $60. Photos by J&B Childress Portrait Art.

Model Train: A full-scale miniature train twists and turns throughout a snow covered village, set up in front of Santa’s house inspiring the imagination of children and adults alike.

Penguin Pond: Be a penguin pal and sponsor a cuddly stuffed penguin for $50. The penguin will be displayed with your name on it in the Penguin Pond during the event and will be given to a patient at Le Bonheur during the holiday season. To become a Penguin Pal, click here
