Holiday Events on the Eastside
By: Coral ~ 11/15/2018

After a terrible snowstorm hits the North Pole, Santa wakes to find all of his reindeer are lost inside Enchant, a hidden pocket of visible magic. Come explore the World’s Largest Christmas Light Maze, and help Santa find his nine missing reindeer in time to save Christmas!

Find enchantment around every bend as you glide the ice skating trail through spectacular, larger-than-life light displays. Ice skate rentals are available on-site and come in all sizes - elf to adult.

Visit Santa and tell him your Christmas wish. While he’s busy checking on the elves, Mrs. Claus will be at Enchant to delight children with stories from the North Pole.

Eat, drink, and be merry! Indulge in seasonal food and treats sure to delight everyone’s tastes at our concession.

Cozy up with a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy nightly live music and shows.
