Santa Claus is coming to town and he’s making his first stop to Santaland at Macy’s flagship Herald Square store.
Beginning November 29, the one-and-only Santa Claus will be in residence at Macy’s Santaland at the retailer’s flagship Herald Square in New York City. Throughout the holiday season, the young and young-at-heart will be transported into a fantasy world of glittering pine trees, snow-capped mountains, twinkling lights, cuddly animals, and gingerbread cookies.
The journey begins with dazzling holiday window vignettes to prepare guests for the magical moments ahead. Next, guests pass by Hallmark Channel Window before boarding the Macy’s Santaland Express, which sweeps visitors through a rarely seen world of wintertime wonder and enchantment. On board this charming train façade, visitors pass through North Pole villages and snow-covered fields on their way to meet Mr. Kringle.
After the bumpy train ride, visitors descend into a captivating winter wonderland – also known as the North Pole! Santa’s Elves eagerly greet passengers while lights, garlands, and crystal sparkle overhead and adorn every corner.
At The Welcome Station, guests will find Santa’s little helpers who can assist guests as they prepare to meet the Man in Red at Santa’s Workshop and then to Town Hall.
At the end, each guest receives a small keepsake from Santa to commemorate their experience. Santa greets children of all ages, both naughty and nice, at Macy’s Herald Square from Friday, November 29 through Christmas Eve.
