Macy's Minneapolis Santaland
Macy’s Minneapolis departments store has been celebrating the Christmas season for nearly 50 years with the annual 8-floor Santaland. "A Day in the Life of an Elf” brings the store to life through the magical tale that depicts Santa's elves at the North Pole as they prepare for Christmas. Shoppers can stop by Mrs. Claus' Bakery for fresh gingerbread cookies and other holiday goodies. Guests may also have their photo taken with Santa or join him for breakfast at select times. Throught the season the Macy’s Puppet Theatre is featuring Moose Crossing, a scheduled trio of song-filled tales starring the voices of Julie Andrews, Mario Cantone, John Tartaglia and Walter Cronkite (check the Macy's website for times). If you miss the action, the kids can still mail a letter to Santa in the specially marked North Pole mailboxes.
