SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Santa and his sleigh are here to stay for the season.
Santa’s Wonderland opened earlier Saturday night at Bass Pro.
To kick off the event, Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick helped light up the night with some festive twinkle around the outdoor shop as well as the Wonderland.
Along with family-friendly crafts and games, this Christmas village offers free photos with Santa.
Pete Duchrow, assistant manager of Bass Pro, says it’s a good way for parents to get a pic of their kids with this Christmas idol.
“It’s kinda cool that we’re just able to bring in all sorts of families,” Duchrow said. “Of course we have tons of Christmas stuff, too … The two just tied together so maybe they’re able to pick up a couple presents while they’re here.”
If you missed Santa Saturday night. don’t worry. He’ll be sticking around the shop until Christmastime.
