Vermont's Santa's Land to reopen during holiday season
PUTNEY, Vt. (AP) -- Santa's Land is coming back to Vermont, at least for 11 days between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Eleven months after announcing they were closing the 55-year-old holiday-themed park, the owners now say it will be open 11 weekend days later this fall.
The first day the park will be open will be the Friday after Thanksgiving. It will be open the rest of that weekend and every Saturday and Sunday through Dec. 23.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports the park has been operating in Putney along Route 5 since 1957, but that owners Timothy and Leslie Wells announced last December that persistent financial issues would force them to close the park permanently.
