American Classic Christmas Activities


Visit with Santa

Come and visit with Santa! Better watch out, though, he'll know if you've been naughty or nice!

Coca-Cola Café

Relax with a cup of hot chocolate, coffee, or a Coca-Cola product as you listen to one of the many local performers at the Coca-Cola Cafe.

Menchie's Candy Cane Forest

Enter an enchanted land, where candy canes and sweet treats hang from Christmas trees. A place where winterland fairies or elves laugh and play (kids 12 years & younger).

Santa's Sleigh

Take a family photo in Santa's sleigh! There are lots of photo opportunities throughout the Square everywhere you turn.
