Santa Lands at 9am Saturday, November 17
Santa's landing and other lawn activities are free to the public, but an admission ticket is required for the Enchanted Forest.
Santa arrives by helicopter to open the Enchanted Forest Festival of Trees, a fundraiser for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital! With his epic dash around the globe a mere month away, Santa Claus needs to let his eight tiny reindeer get their rest! While you wait for Santa, Le Bonheur has donut holes and fun activities for the kids provided by the Art Project.
Swooping in from the North Pole, Santa’s chopper will land on the lawn of the Pink Palace Mansion, where the young and young-at-heart will greet the jolly old elf with cheers of joy! Once the chopper rotors stop spinning, join in as Santa and the Memphis Second Line Jazz Band lead a parade inside the Pink Palace Museum, officially opening the Enchanted Forest Festival of Trees. Stop at the Pink Palace box office to get tickets, then visit Santa in the Enchanted Forest —where even more magic awaits!
