Visitors experience an enormous indoor Christmas forest wonderland with over 110 scenes of characters from Mother Goose rhymes, children’s fairy tales and family movies, two elaborate model train displays, a Victorian Village and the North Pole with Santa TOO! Although admission is free, a donation of canned foods for Fish of Albany food pantry or a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots is gladly accepted.
