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!
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).
Take a family photo in Santa's sleigh! There are lots of photo opportunities throughout the Square everywhere you turn.
“Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
