Christmas every day at Santa’s Workshop

January 29, 2013
Adirondack Daily Enterprise

Nestled on the slopes of Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid in New York's breathtaking Adirondack Park is North Pole, NY, the home of Santa's Workshop: America's first theme park.

Come stroll through this charming fairyland, chat with Santa and Mrs. Claus and take some time to pet and feed their live reindeer team.

Live shows and musical reviews, presented by the Mother Goose Guild, are scheduled throughout the day, featuring Frosty the Snowman, Chris Moose, Rowdy the Reindeer and all their storybook friends. A special treat, the picturesque Nativity Pageant, portraying the story of the first Christmas, unfolds on a shady hillside as a beautiful reminder of the true meaning of the season.

Among the many amusements throughout the village are the child-friendly rides such as the Christmas Carousel, Santa's Sleigh Coaster, and the ever-popular Candy Cane Express steam train. Visit and browse through our specialty shops, offering a wide array of tempting treats, gifts and reminders of a magical day at the North Pole. Visit and chat with the Candy maker as she crafts those scrumptious chocolate delights. Visit the Glass-Blowing Shop and watch as its craftsperson creates a "one of a kind" figure or ornament, just for you. Jack Sprat's Bakery for that quick snack, the Toy Shop for a wide selection of plush and wooden toys and our Christmas themed, World of Christmas store always have an open door for visitors both young and old.

For a relaxing break, sample a tasty lunch at Mother Hubbard's Restaurant. Plan to join Santa each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for a special breakfast throughout the summer. Don't forget to take a few minutes during your visit to banter back and forth with Tannenbaum, the Talking Christmas Tree as well as Santa's "barnyard friends" where you can feed the baby pigs and calves.

All in all, Santa's Workshop has something for everyone and is a perfect way to spend a memorable day while visiting the area.

Santa's Workshop is located approximately 30 minutes off of Interstate Route 87, exit 30 and just 12 miles outside the village of Lake Placid in the Essex County town of Wilmington.

Santa's Workshop is open fall weekends through Columbus Day and several weekends prior to Christmas.
