The Erie County Parks Department partners with the Orchard Park Recreation Department to present this popular, free event that features a full schedule of family fun on both days. Events run from 11:00am to 3:00pm both Saturday 12/10/16 and Sunday 12/11/16.
Presented by the Erie County Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department in conjunction with the Orchard Park Recreation Department, Santa Land is bringing back family activities this year including a hay maze, wood cutting, and marshmallow roasts on both days. Family favorites from earlier years return as well, with hay rides to Santa, face painting, a huge mural, and arts & crafts scheduled for both days. In addition, the Casino’s concession stand will be open during the event offering food and drink for sale. If conditions permit, sledding will also be available. Santa Land is also a designated drop-off site for the Toys for Tots campaign, and participants are encouraged to drop off a new, unwrapped toy to brighten a child’s holiday.
The last hayride departs at 2:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
The Chestnut Ridge Conservancy provides volunteers at this event.
