Storytime Magic with Santa

Christmas Town Presents—Storytime Magic with Santa

Christmas is going to look a bit different this year, but the Christmas magic is coming back to Mountsberg with Storytime Magic with Santa! We’ve all had to make some adjustments in 2020, and Santa has too. Bring Santa’s favourite little helpers out to Mountsberg for a scavenger hunt through the woods and Santa’s magic village, pre packaged cookie and a Christmas craft. Finish out the day with virtual Christmas story time (Santa learned how to use Zoom!) outdoors.

Note: Because the City of Hamilton is moving into the grey zone on Monday, December 21 this unfortunately means that we will be cancelling the Storytime Magic with Santa program from December 21 onwards. The program will run up until December 20.



The Program

For the 2020 season Christmas Town is pleased to present Storytime Magic with Santa. In an effort to keep all of our guests, staff, Santa, and Mrs. Claus safe and healthy this holiday season, Christmas Town has undergone some changes! Guests to this iconic experience will be able to enjoy:

  • A woodland walk out to Christmas Town
  • A self-guided Christmas Town Adventure Tour of the Temporary North Pole, outdoor bonfires, Toy Central, Flight Academy, and Santa’s Cabin in the woods (approx. 25 minutes)
  • Storytime Magic with Santa – this year Santa is staying safely at the North Pole so he can stay healthy for his all-important Christmas Eve visit. We will be calling him via Zoom in his den in the North Pole where he will take a break from reading letters and making toys to greet families at Mountsberg and share a Christmas story. Mrs. Claus will make a special guest appearance too!
  • Cookie treat and take-home craft
  • Day time guests will be able to also enjoy a self-guided visit with our resident raptors and farm animals or play time on the NEW natural playground
  • Evening guests will enjoy new and improved magical lighting in Christmas Town
