    • I think it has changed here and there over the years. I know it costs to have an ornament made. We have gone almost every year since 1994. It may cost to have a picture made now, but I’m pretty sure they always let us take our own pictures as well. He’s a great santa!!

  1. The ornaments are $11, the photo card is $9.
    You can take your own photos as well, I don’t think there is a charge unless you want to get the card or the ornament.

  2. On the city website it claims that you can check in and get a text when they are ready for you so you don’t have to wait in line. However, when we got there, this was not the case and we had to wait in line behind about 40 people. I wish they hadn’t advertised a feature they weren’t actually offering.

  3. This year I was very disappointed. I used to work for Santa on the square about 10 years ago and I’ve been bringing my children because it was always the best, however it has become way too complicated to see Santa. I tried to sign up online but the online times were already booked. Then I got there at 11:00 and the first available time wasn’t until 3:50. I know you’re trying to keep people from having to wait in line, but this is very hard to plan your day around when there’s a 5 hour delay in seeing Santa. Then we finally got our time, and the new big workshop is. Ice, however the 3-4 other people in the workshop with Santa and the music playing in the workshop made it very hard to hear what my daughter and Santa were discussing. The extra people were carying on their so conversation and it was louder than Santa. When I worked Santa on the square we always tried to be very quiet while Santa was talking to the kids and tried to disappear as much as possible. I’m sorry to say we are going to find a different Santa next year. I miss the tiny quaint Santa but with just 1 or 2 “elves” to help take pictures. Very disappointed.
