Bring the entire family to the North Pole Village at Snow Fest.  It is a Hollywood-style movie set themed as a Main Street at Santa’s North Pole – all lit up with holiday lights.  Snow-Fest captures all the holiday spirit and places it at one event. You will also enjoy an outdoor market featuring holiday arts & crafts, food, treats, and beverages including hot chocolate and cider.
