Santa’s Village moving downtown

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 12/11/2010 (3394 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

The vintage Eaton’s Santa’s Village is moving downtown in time for Saturday’s Santa Claus Parade.

A beloved part of Christmas for generations of Winnipeggers, the display that was once an annual attraction at the iconic downtown department store will now be on display at the new Manitoba Hydro tower on Portage Avenue.

The village, featuring 15 motorized fairytale vignettes, has been stored at the Manitoba Children’s Museum since Eaton’s closed. But with the museum closed to the public for major renovations, the  village — a number of its vignettes have recently been restored — will spend the 2010 holiday season at the Manitoba Hydro Place Gallery, 360 Portage Ave.

It can be viewed free of charge on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
