Chances are you’ll hear “Remember the good ol’ days?” at least once this Christmas season. And it’s true, Christmas has changed over the years, and for many, the good ol’ days were what Christmas was really about.  But what if that classic Christmas never actually left?

Every year, Heritage Park, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, celebrates this special time of year with Once Upon A Christmas. 

What’s become a family tradition for so many, takes place every weekends from November 22 through to December 21, 2014 from 9:30 am - 4:00 pm and takes visitors on a trip back into true holiday enchantment by offering up some of those “good ol’ day” experiences.

Here are some of those “Good Ol’ Day” holiday experiences you can only get at Heritage Park’s Once Upon a Christmas:

EXPERIENCE A REAL-LIFE MANGER (OF SORTS)! 

Cuddle up close with Santa’s Christmas Critters, including jolly goats, lovable lambs, real-life velveteen rabbits and more!

BECOME YOUR OWN “GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST”. 

You and your family can give a nod to one of the most classic Christmas tales of all time, as you step back in time (and get in costume) in the vintage photo parlour.

JINGLE BELLS! 

You’ve sung about a “a one-horse open sleigh” your whole life, but have you ever been on one?  Now’s your chance to dash through the snow with the Heritage Park’s holiday wagon rides.

EVEN OUR GRANDPARENTS GOT TOYS FOR CHRISTMAS!

Oh to be eight again... Heritage Park has a brand new Toy Shoppe loaded with something for everyone. It’s like a trip to Santa’s Workshop without having to search for the North Pole. It’s probably warmer too.

SPEAKING OF THE NORTH POLE

It’s hard not to get excited when you hear your first Ho Ho Ho of the year. Actually, that never gets old. And what would Once Upon a Christmas be without an up close and personal encounter with Santa himself!  It’s the ultimate dream come true, no matter how old you are.
