Santa’s Station

Visit Santa, Mrs. Claus, and their elves at Santa’s Station!

Santa’s Station is located in the heart of Uptown in between Uptown Station and the Children’s Discovery Museum. Santa opens his station on Sunday, December 1, and girls and boys can pay him a visit all throughout December!

A visit to Santa’s Station is free, but donations are encouraged. All proceeds will benefit local organizations such as Special Olympics Illinois, ISU Child Care Center, Bloomington-Normal Branch of the NAACP, and Northpoint Elementary Families – PTO .

Parents are encouraged to bring their own cameras and take as many photos as they like.

Enjoy music from local artists and free carriage rides will also be offered on select dates. Carriage rides are given by same day reservation only. To sign up for a ride, please stop by the booth on the northeast side of Uptown Circle just prior to the advertised start time for that day. Riders will be given the next available time slot, or the next available slot that works with their schedule. Simply return to the pick-up/drop-off area 10 minutes prior to your scheduled ride time and wait your turn.
