Where To Find Santa In The Pioneer Valley: Destination Spots

Santa at Yankee Candle, South Deerfield, MA

Yankee Candle in South Deerfield, MA is one of the premier places to see Santa in the Pioneer Valley. This Santa is the REAL deal. In addition to offering a portrait package, you can also snap photos with your camera, which is a total bonus. Here is a full listing of Santa’s holiday hours.  You should note that this is a very popular destination for Santa seekers in the Pioneer Valley, so plan to get there when it first opens or plan to wait in line. Fridays and weekends are a mad house.
