ELF DISPLAYS & ELF SCAVENGER HUNT<br> GARDNER VILLAGE
ELF DISPLAYS & ELF SCAVENGER HUNT
GARDNER VILLAGE

November 21 to December 31, 2020
You don’t need a ticket on the Polar Express to see Santa’s magic in action. Gardner Village brings you another year of fun from the North Pole with our whimsical elf displays. See Santa’s helpers at work, testing toys, sorting letters addressed to Mr. Claus and maintaining those all-important Naughty and Nice lists. For added festivity, turn your enchanted elf tour into a game by printing our Elf Scavenger Hunt form. It outlines a full list of mischievous elf displays waiting to be discovered. Take a sneak peek at our little elves here.

Print your scavenger hunt form here beginning November 21, 2020. Please note: There will NOT be paper scavenger hunt forms available on site. However, you'll be able to point your phone's camera on a code and pull up the scavenger hunt using your mobile device while you're here from signs located throughout the Village. Look for those signs if you forget your hunt papers.

Start your Christmas traditions at Gardner Village. Be a good elf and wear your face coverings and socially distance while you're here.
