CHILTON — If you’re looking for a fun and safe holiday activity to experience with your family, look no further than The North Pole Christmas Village.
This Christmas display originally started in Kaukauna, but it has moved to Chilton and is open for the first time at its new location this year.
To visit, put N5207 Lemke Road, Chilton, into your GPS.
The goal of the North Pole Christmas Village is to change the world for the defense of disabled individuals and children and the elderly who are forgotten at Christmas, according to Troy Campbell the creator of the holiday spectacle.
They are working towards doing this by taking every precaution they can to keep the most vulnerable people safe while also spreading hope and holiday cheer.
This year, people who are in need of special accommodations–such as the elderly, families with small children, and people with underlying medical conditions who can not be around crowds–are able to email or message The North Pole Christmas Village on Facebook to set up a time to come and visit.
Those who don’t need the accommodated times slots are welcome at any time.
The North Pole Christmas Village is open Monday-Friday 5 p.m.-9 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday 1 p.m.-9 p.m. Santa will be there every night from 5 p.m.-8 p.m. until Dec. 24th. The last day to visit the North Pole Christmas Village is Jan. 1st.
Admission to The North Pole Christmas Village is free, though donations are welcome. They are also collecting food for the area’s food banks.
