Event Calendar

The schedule of events will be subject to change based on the weather and availability of mascots, school groups, and representatives from appearing organizations.  We apologize, in advance, for any unscheduled changes.

Santa

Santa will be in Winter Wonderland every night from 6:00 to 9:00 PM starting Thanksgiving through December 24 (unless there is an unexpected emergency at the North Pole that he has to attend to!). Optional photos with Santa taken by a professional photographer will be available each night for an additional cost. Visitors may choose to take their own pictures with Santa on Monday, November 30, Tuesday, December 1, and Monday, December 7 ONLY.

Winter Wonderland

To get to Winter Wonderland, park your car and stroll through the Tunnel of Lights.  Open every night, Winter Wonderland is where all of our events take place. After visiting WinterWonderland, it is easy to get back in your car and continue on the 1.5 mile drive through all the large light displays!

  • If you would like to take multiple trips through the displays, we encourage you to visit on Monday through Thursday nights. Due to heavy traffic and safety concerns, we may not be able to accommodate multiple passes through the lights on weekends. Thank you for your understanding.
