Don’t miss a memorable Christmas freebie! 🎅
Bass Pro Shops has confirmed with us that Santa will be arriving at all participating locations on Saturday, November 5th. Awesome!
While this tradition may vary by location, Santa’s arrival date is usually reserved for a parking lot parade and tailgate celebration welcoming him to the store. At most locations, individual appointments for photos will begin on the following day.
Advance reservations to get a photo taken with Santa are strongly recommended, especially if you’re planning to visit him on a high-traffic day like weekends or school holidays. These slots can fill up quickly, so be sure to reserve your time slot as early as possible!
Reservations typically open up about a week in advance, so if you want to schedule your appointment on November 6th, we recommend checking for available time slots beginning the weekend of October 29th.
Families who visit Santa will receive a FREE 4×6 studio-quality photo, as well as a FREE digital video greeting card to share on social media. Additional photo packages will also be available to purchase and print instantly in the store.
During your visit, families will also be able to play games, enjoy kid-friendly crafts and activities, and mail their letters to Santa. There are usually fun freebies to take home while supplies last, too! In the past, the freebies have included picture frames, ornaments, Santa squishies, DIY craft kits, and more.
