It has pony rides and other activities during a 90-minute to two-hour stay:

• see an Origins of Christmas display that explains our many traditions;

• visit the bakery and decorate a large cookie – and of course eat it;

• take a ride in a covered wagon;

• get lost and find their way through a hay maze;

• visit the petting zoo with bunnies, goats, a miniature horse, llama and more;

• get a family photo in a country Christmas scene;

• visit the workshop and make a Christmas ornament to take home.

Most of the events are indoors, and even the wagon is covered.
