Pictures and Events with Santa Claus

Every holiday season you look forward to seeing your child's smile when they see Santa Claus for the first time of the year. We also love to see Mrs. Claus and the jolly elves together they make events and holiday cards more festive. Because of this we search Michigan to locate the best locations to see Jolly Ole' St. Nick and friends. We wish you a Merry Michigan Life!
