There are several stops to make during Yuletide.  Find a Christmas Fairy Village and holiday craft for the kids inside the beautiful castle.  Inside the barn is where you will find a great holiday train display and snow village.  There is a snow village scavenger hunt that kids can participate in also.  Santa Claus will be inside the barn ready to hear wish lists and take a photo.  Across the way, light snacks and refreshments are available for purchase.

Tickets can be purchased ahead of time online here or at the gift shop.  The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and children (6-17) and free for children 5 and under.  There are discounts for Yew Dell members.
