Take the family and visit the "Annual Santa's Hualapai Wonderland" which will take place at the Hualapai Mountain Park near Kingman, Arizona. The historical buildings throughout the park will sparkle with lights, decorations and displays that will make visitors believe they have arrived at Santa's North Pole.
Visitors will pay the standard one-day admission fee of $5 per vehicle, or they can show their annual pass at the gate.
Santa will be there in a rustic mountain lodge with fireplaces burning at each end of the building to visit with the children and pose for pictures. Visiting with Santa is free, and parents can take their own photos of their children with the jolly old elf if they like. A photographer will be there to take pictures of children with Santa if they are requested.
Hay rides around the park, hot cocoa and marshmallow roasting will be free. Volunteers are needed to help direct traffic, supervise marshmallow roasting. The Post Office will have people on hand to help children right letters to Santa. Elves will assist children in making thier own holiday ornaments.
Mohave County Parks has invited businesses to participate in decorating a cabin, recreation area, and the ranger station. For businesses it is a great chance to build team morale or have an office party. Each business is permitted to place a sign at the site.
The park will remain open for all regular activities including hiking, camping and cabin rentals. Weather permitting, there may be sledding, snowball throwing and snowman-making going on. Hualapai Mountain Park sits at an elevation of about 6,500 feet and has 2,300 acres of ponderosa pine forest, making it a good spot for visitors looking to have a picturesque holiday celebration.
