A Believe It Tour adventure just wouldn’t be complete without including Santa Claus. This trip is especially exciting since we’ll get to see the jolly old gentleman not once, but twice during our travels. The first time we saw Santa and Mrs. Claus was at a Christmas extravaganza known as Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth, Michigan.
Bronner’s lays claim to being the world’s largest Christmas store in the world and from all appearances it certainly lives up to that title. This store is a Michigan landmark having been founded in 1945 by Wally Bronner. From it’s humble beginning almost 60 years ago it’s grown into a huge enterprise that’s all about Christmas almost 365 days of the year.
As soon as we walked into Bronner’s we were greeted by Santa, so that got everything off to a good start for all of us. Not only was a live Santa there talking to everyone, but all things Santa were surrounding us from Christmas ornaments to large moving figures. We not only got to talk to Santa Claus, but we also found some mermaids, aliens, and Sasquatch ornaments while exploring the store.
After a quick walk-about through the store and a quick group photo with Santa the crew was back on the road and speeding off to our next destination.
