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 Saturday, December 2nd 2017 and good girls and boys can pay him a visit right up until Christmas Eve, when he departs to take care of some important business!

A visit to Santa’s Station is free, but donations are encouraged. All proceeds will benefit Special Olympics, except for Saturdays when Mrs. Claus is helping out and a portion of proceeds will go to the ISU Child Care Center.

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

Free carriage rides will also be offered throughout the month of December. 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.

Check back soon for 2017 dates and hours!
