Santa Claus has come to town. After making stops at the Clark County Public Library and the Bluegrass Heritage Museum, Santa has made his way to Winchester’s new Winter Wonderland, where he will be until Christmas.
The Winter Wonderland was created by Darian Sasher when she learned the old Wildcat Mattress building on Shoppers Drive would be empty while the owners set up a new store on the Bypass.
“We’ve turned an empty concrete space into a winter wonderland. I think for a community like Winchester, it’s totally awesome,” Sasher said.
The Winter Wonderland will feature story time with Mrs. Clause, craft time and a visit with Santa. Admission is $5 for children, and free for parents.
Visitors must take their own pictures with Santa.
Craft supplies are included with price of admission.
“We’ve had a wonderful response so far. People are thrilled with the idea of getting to do something for the holidays locally,” Sasher said.
The Winter Wonderland will be open Thursdays from 5 to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. from now until Dec. 23.
“It’s a homespun Christmas experience,” Sasher said.
