Santa head­ing south east as the North Pole comes to the Quays

Wexford People - - NEWS -

THE North Pole is com­ing to the Wex­ford Quays this Christ­mas.

Lo­cated on the quays be­side Wex­ford Peo­ple Wex­ford on Ice, Santa’s North Pole Ex­pe­ri­ence will cap­ti­vate young and old this Christ­mas time.

This won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence, part of The Wex­ford Win­ter­land Fes­ti­val, prom­ises magic and fun around ev­ery snowy cor­ner.

Stroll through the Magic For­est with snow-cov­ered Christ­mas trees glis­ten­ing in the moon­light. At the end of the for­est, you will see the En­chanted Gates to the Elves Vil­lage.

In or­der to en­ter, each child will have to find a magic coin to open the gates. Here, chil­dren can post their let­ters and visit the sleep­ing Dozy Elf who is al­ways late for work. Can the kids wake him up in time?

Next, visit the rein­deers’ sta­bles and leave food for your favourite rein­deer.

The Elves Work­shop is usu­ally kept be­hind closed doors, but this very special visit al­lows you to meet the Grand High Elf and help mend and make toys. Chil­dren may even be made Hon­orary Elves!

Patch the Elf will then bring fam­i­lies, in­di­vid­u­ally, to meet and re­ceive a gift from the one and only - Santa Claus!

Santa’s North Pole Ex­pe­ri­ence runs from Fri­day, De­cem­ber 1 to Satur­day, De­cem­ber 23. Tick­ets are €8 per adult and €16 per child. Un­der 2s are €8 and un­der 12 months are free.

Chil­dren’s tick­ets in­clude a special gift from Santa and adult tick­ets in­clude a hot bev­er­age to warm you dur­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence. Santa’s North Pole Ex­pe­ri­ence is new to The Wex­ford Win­ter­land Fes­ti­val this year. Other favourite events will return in­clud­ing The Christ­mas Ex­press where lit­tle ones will be en­chanted by Christ­mas tales from Mrs Claus. The Wex­ford Peo­ple Wex­ford on Ice will be open from Satur­day, November 25 to Jan­uary 7.
