Christmas Cheer All Year at North Pole, Alaska

May 23, 2011 by Editor

If you are moving to Alaska or just visiting, the spirit of Christmas is alive all year in North Pole, but never more glowing than in the month of December. North Pole, Alaska, is located about 12 miles south of Fairbanks on the Richardson Highway that begins at Delta Junction. Central attractions in the village are the picturesque Santa Claus House and a 42-foot figure of Santa. Since 1952, Santa Claus House has sent out over two million letters from Santa to children all over the world.

As you might imagine, December is a busy time in North Pole. Letters from near and far are sent to the town to obtain the distinctive “North Pole” postmark. 

The first weekend of December, families flock to North Pole for the annual Winterfest events and Christmas tree lighting. The sparkling Christmas in Ice kicks off a competition of Christmas-themed ice sculptures by local and international carvers. Family entertainment includes an ice maze and ice slides. 

North Pole will warm your soul in the magical holiday season, but if you’d prefer to keep all your parts unchilled, visit North Pole in August for a view of classic cars and Santa’s summer ensemble during “Cruisin’ with Santa.”
