Arts, Culture & Heritage Our season comes to an end quickly but we could not wrap things up without Christmas in the Village on December 11th from 2 pm - 7 pm. What would Christmas be without a visit with Santa in the stable and the opportunity to sit with him in his sleigh. Visit the Leder Haus and prepare a gingerbread man to leave out on Christmas eve for Santa; at the Trapper Cabin enjoy roasting marshmallows on a campfire while also enjoying a hot drink. The buildings have all been decorated for Christmas and in the School house a tree adorned with decorations of memories from your past stands tall. Carollers will be singing and the evening high-lighted, of course, with a sleigh ride.

Cost: donation pay the reindeer at the gate
