From there, tables will be set up outside the parlor where children can write a letter to Mr. Claus and personally deliver it. Lee Loveless Photography will provide photos with Santa for $5 each, which are printed onsite.
Other attractions at the workshop include an electric train that toddlers can ride, a central area with toys and coloring, an East Texas forest industry exhibit and the variety of displays from the Texas State Railroad Society. “Life on the Neches,” a pictorial display featuring the route of the Polar Express Train ride, will be available for viewing, as well as the movie The Polar Express, which will run continuously through the day. Visitors can then wrap up their experience at the gift shop, where they can pick up a wooden train whistle, among other treasures.
Santa’s Magical Workshop & Wonderland Depot will be open today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is $1.
