Visit Bachman's on Lyndale for treats, shopping, and season’s greetings during store hours Saturday and Sunday. Vendors will lead live demos and tastings throughout the store on Saturday. Kids can also visit the live reindeer corral once they’ve landed from The North Pole, Saturday 11-4, and Sunday, 11-3 p.m. And stop by the Bachman’s craft counter to make a Christmas craft* and reindeer food.* Cookies, juice, and coffee available for snacking! And of course, see our holiday play at 11 a.m., 12:30, 2 and 3* p.m.
SATURDAY ONLY: Santa Arrives Via Reindeer-Drawn Sleigh!
9:30 a.m. A DJ will spin holiday tunes in the store, while special guest Ralphie, from the Ordway's "A Christmas Story, The Musical," will perform "Red Ryder Action BB Gun" and then interact with guests at Santa's workshop.
10:30 a.m. Santa, Elf Albert, and their reindeer sleigh arrive! Santa will meet and greet guests, then welcome everyone into Bachman’s workshop within Lyndale for performances, kids activities, and more.
11 a.m. Santa and Albert star in Bachman’s own unique holiday play, repeated later in the day at 12:30, 2 and 3* p.m. Attendees may continue on to shop, enjoy treats, visit the reindeer in their den, and make kids crafts while supplies last.
Play with caution! Santa and his elves have a lot of thrilling, surprising, and downright goofy toys in development at the workshop, but they might not be ready to be wrapped! Spend some time with Santa’s trusty sidekick Albert as he sneaks a peek and discovers what happens when you don’t listen and follow directions.
