Santa Sets Up Shop at Riverdale Village



If you're shopping for some holiday magic in Coon Rapids, stop by Riverdale Village and check out Santa's Wonderland.

"Merry Christmas, good afternoon, come on in and see Santa," Mike Starr, also known as Santa, said.

For a flat fee, you can take all the pictures you want with your own camera.

"You take as much time as you want,” Santa Mike said. “Take all the photos you want to take and it works out nice for the family."

There are a variety of scenic backdrops to use with popular holiday characters, so you can take even more pictures, like with Santa's reindeer and sleigh.

On average, a family can spend upwards of 30 minutes taking pictures to their hearts content. A photo with Santa at Christmas is a special memory, that lasts a lifetime.

"And that's what I get out of it, helping the kids to believe in the magic of Christmas," Santa Mike said.

Santa’s Wonderland is located at 12709 Riverdale Boulevard, next to Salons by JC Coon Rapids. Santa's Wonderland is open daily, Monday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The last day for photos is Friday, December 23.
