(BEDFORD) – Santa and Mrs. Claus stopped at Otis Park on Thursday evening to meet and greet children and hear what they want for Christmas.
The children first stopped at the Bathhouse for some cookies and refreshments. They colored Christmas pictures and watched Christmas movies before heading to the sleigh to see Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Santa’s sleigh arrived to take groups of children up to the North Pole to see Santa and Mrs. Claus. Santa Claus Lane was decorated with Christmas lights on the trees and other Christmas themed lighting was scattered along the way.
In asking Nolan Reagan what he was going to request from Santa this year he said – “I am going to keep that a secret.”
When arriving at the North Pole the children made their way to first see Mrs. Claus who read “Twas The Night Before Christmas.” After the story, children visited with Santa’s Elves who handed out treats and prepared them to meet Santa. One by one they sat by Santa and told them their requests.
The North Pole had two fireplaces crackling with a warm fire to keep everyone warm. The atmosphere was festive and both adults and children shared in the holiday spirit amongst the holiday decorations.
Santa’s Sleigh then brought the children back down the hill. On the way down WBIW asked the children if they had fun. They all answering was a big loud “YES”. When asked if they all got in their requests to Santa, there was another big loud “Yes.” Macie Johnston said that she had a lot of fun.
Santa will be in Bedford both Friday and Saturday evening from 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. Tickets are $2 for visitors ages 6 and above. Children under the age of 5 are free.
