We stopped here just to get a picture of the kids with the statue. You can pull into the parking lot and walk right up.

What a delightful gem!!! Unique name of the town caught of eye and decided to explore. Loved the statue located beside the old Santa Claus Church. Drove through the small town and noticed all the Christmas details found everywhere: City Hall, Fire station, and Post...More
