For the first time in 30 years, Santa and Mrs. Claus will not be arriving by helicopter to Yankee Candle Village. But the iconic holiday stop has found a way for kids to visit ole St Nick even during the age of Covid!
A virtual visit is available starting this Saturday, November 21. For $10, guests can walk through a magical winter wonderland and enjoy a video visit with Santa, streaming live from his workshop in the North Pole, and commemorate the trip by taking a green-screen photo with Santa. Included in the experience is a personalized candle label.
“This will be unlike events that we have held in the past but will certainly bring smiles to so many faces and that is what the holiday season is all about,” said Wade Bassett, director of Retail Operations. (On a personal note, we've worked with Wade and the team at Yankee Candle Village closely for years, and they take Christmas smiles very seriously!)
