When the weather outside is frightful, Cowtown's lamp-lit, carol-filled streets will warm you up! There's something magical about bundling up, stepping into the cold, and enjoying a warm cup of hot chocolate with family and friends. Just between you and me - Santa's workshop is actually located at Cowtown, and he doesn't mind if visitors stop by as he finishes up the last toys for all the good girls and boys.
