Santa & Wagon Rides Schedule
On Weekends, Santa will be on hand so children can sit on his lap and whisper their wishes in his ear while mom and dad snap the perfect photos for your Christmas card. There are also horse drawn wagon rides through the forest. Everyone loves to hear the horses clip clopping along and the bells around their necks jingling away.
