Santa’s Workshop, by former Chaska resident Kelley Archer, has once again opened up shop in St. Bonifacius.
Children can visit Santa in his workshop and receive a gift, a candy cane and a sticker. Parents can take free pictures and video and children with Santa.
Children can also write a personal letter to Santa, including their full name and address, and drop it in the mail box on the front of the workshop, and they will receive a response from Santa.
The workshop is mildly heated, carpeted, with many decorations and music. Pets are also welcome, and will receive a treat. The event is free.
