The most wonderful time of the year is even better when there’s a lot of FREE attached to it! And for that, look no further than Bass Pro Shop.

It’s annual Santa’s Wonderland invites kids of all ages into a 3,500-square-foot village of awesomeness that’s full of games and activities that don’t cost a cent!

Mingle with elves, hop on Santa’s lap for a free photo, build with Lincoln Logs, operate remote-control vehicles, take aim in the laser/foam toy arcade, create crafts, write letters to St. Nick and more.

Kids can hop on Santa's lap for a free 4 x 6 photo, too! St. Nick's photo hours vary daily throughout the season as do the crafting times. You'll need to pick up a Bass Pass in the store to get a spot in line for Santa photos. The Bass Pass secures your place in a virtual line, allowing your family to explore the rest of Santa's Wonderland until it's time for your photo op. Bass Passes are limited and go quickly each day, so plan ahead accordingly.

Bass Pro Shop is located at 323 Opry Mills Drive, Nashville. Store hours are Mon - Sat 9 a.m. - 9 p.m., Sun 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. Call 514-5200 or visit for the complete Santa's Wonderland hours and activities that change daily.
