Santa Claus is coming to Bass Pro Shops

November 5, 2009 | 12:43 pm

Santa's Wonderland.

Santa Claus is making his annual visit to Bass Pro Shops. Giving his reindeer the afternoon off, Santa will be arriving at 3 p.m. Sunday, riding in a boat being hauled by a pickup truck. There will be a special tree lighting ceremony, a ribbon-cutting to Santa's Wonderland and also a chance to win one of many Bass Pro Shops gift cards.

All sorts of activities will be taking place to get young and old geared up for Christmas, including the opportunity for children to visit Santa and get their photo taken,  a Red Ryder laser arcade (reminiscent of the popular holiday movie "A Christmas Story" except you can't shoot your eye out), and the chance to play the new fishing video game, "The Strike."

On weekends beginning Nov. 14, kids can take part in making Christmas cookies, candy cane reindeer and craft items, including Santa bobbers and moose and reindeer ornaments.

"Santa's Wonderland -- A Classic Christmas" will be at the Bass Pro Shop store in Rancho Cucamonga through Dec. 24.
