It's an Elf Hunt!

You don't have to catch a flying sleigh to the North Pole to get a glimpse of elf life. Santa's hard working helpers have landed in Gardner Village for you to find and enjoy.

The elves are back in town! 

The Gardner Village Elf Displays is a completely free annual event and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon or evening with your family getting into the Christmas spirit.

Some of Santa's hard working friends have set up shop in The Village.

While others stay busy testing toys and preparing for Christmas.

But every elf needs a break from time to time.
After all, the reindeer aren't the only ones who appreciate a good game. 

Elf Scavenger Hunt
Get in on the games by playing along with our Elf Scavenger Hunt. Download our Elf Scavenger Hunt form before you go and see how many friendly faces you can spot. Once you've found all of the elves outlined, bring your completed form to the Chocolate Covered Wagon for a free piece of old- fashioned salt water taffy. The taffy is made on a vintage taffy puller right inside the shop. Yum!

Tip: Look up! You never know what you'll see those elves getting themselves into.

Don't forget to bring your completed form(s) to Chocolate Covered Wagon for a free piece of freshly-made taffy.
Share Your Pics
And don't forget to capture an #ElfieSelfie or two while you're at it. We just love seeing The Village through your eyes and can't wait to see the creative ways you document your elf adventure.

Remember to add those hashtags so we can find you.

Night Lights
If you haven't been to Gardner Village at night during the holidays, now's the time. In addition to the elves, The Village comes to life with twinkle lights and Christmas carols. It's like stepping into a winter wonderland.

You won't find many campfires to warm your hands over, but they do serve a delicious cup of hot chocolate inside Archibald's Restaurant. Pair it with some of their famous white chocolate bread pudding or carrot cake for a heavenly end to your elf adventure!

We Have a Winner
The time has come to announce the winner of our Celebrations by Modern Display $25 gift certificate. Thanks to all who entered. We're delighted to announce that we've pulled the name Joan Kubes from Santa's sack.

"Our favorite tradition is to make hot cocoa in to go cups, then we all pile into the car and drive around town to see all the beautiful Christmas lights." --Joan Kubes

Sounds like a great tradition, Joan! Thank you for sharing. Please email to claim your prize.

See You at the North Pole Gardner Village Soon
Before you settle in for your long winter's nap, make sure you make a date to visit our elves. It will likely become a tradition you'll enjoy with your own little elves each and every year.
