SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Bass Pro Shops Santa’s Wonderland - a Christmas Classic - is returning for its sixth year to 57 Bass Pro Shops stores throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Santa Claus will arrive at some locations in a Tracker boat pulled by a Toyota Tundra truck on Saturday, Nov. 9 at 5 p.m. for a special preview celebration.

The rest of the Christmas season, families are invited to create new traditions and lasting memories at Bass Pro Shops through free pictures with Santa, crafts for kids, and games and activities to celebrate the season.

Those visiting Santa Claus will receive a free 4 x 6 studio-quality photo. Every store will also have an animatronics-talking caribou that can interact with the crowd.

In addition, Bass Pro Shops is offering free Christmas decorations and hand-made crafts to take home. Holiday crafts for kids will include making holiday ornaments, a stuffed Christmas owl and Santa, a candy cane reindeer, and decorating Christmas cookies on Dec. 24 from 3 - 5.pm. at most locations.
