North Pole at Fair

A Christmas Paradise for kids.

front-cover-ticketsThe North Pole at the Fair is an immersion experience for all kids, and the kid in all of us.  After years of taking photos at the mall, we have seen the lines grow to ridiculous lengths.  Kids don’t want to stand in line, they want to play — and that is what we are giving them.  The goal is to exercise their imaginations, push their creativity, and experience the magic the Christmas season can bring.

Santa’s House

  • Santa’s Office: Take a look around Santa’s office where all the mail is read, naughty and nice lists are made, and the Christmas Eve sleigh route is determined. Write your own letter to Santa on “official” Santa Claus stationary at one of the desks made specifically for the North Pole. See if you have what it takes to make the nice list this year!
  • Santa’s Library: Santa loves nothing more than a good book when he is not busy preparing for Christmastime. Choose from over 470 Christmas themed children books to read in a special Santa chair.
  • Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen: Nothing is sweeter than Mrs. Claus, except maybe her cookies and delectable treats. Enjoy a cookie fresh from her oven, washed down with a cold cup of milk. Or warm up with some tasty hot cocoa. Needless to say, Santa doesn’t starve for sweets at the North Pole and neither should you!
  • Santa’s Workshop: Imagine what could be wrapped in the packages lining the Workshop wall. Pull a stool up to the workshop table and color a special project.
