Santa’s Village is returning to Boundary County

December 4, 2021

If you’re looking for some Christmas fun this season, look no further than the border! Jake’s Landing in Porthill is turning into Santa’s Village again this year. The little town is not only "decking the halls" but will also be decked out in over 10,000 lights! Stop into Santa's Village between 2 and 7 p.m. the Fridays and Saturdays of December 10-11 and 17-18 for all kinds of holiday fun and activities.

Santa will be available throughout the day in Santa's Place to take pictures and pass out candy canes to the kids and Mrs. Claus will have Story Time for young children on the hour and half hour in Santa's Shoppe.

Throughout the Village, you can enjoy sitting down for dinner or sip some season flavored hot chocolate or apple cider while the kids enjoy many free Christmas activities. Holiday craft making workshops will be offered for a small cost to cover materials and instruction. Also, you can enjoy shopping at Santa’s Candy Corner or pick up a holiday ornament, mug, Christmas wreathand much more!

Santa’s Village at Jake’s Landing makes an excellent family adventure to see the lights, say hi to Santa, enjoy the festive spirit or just hang out with friends and enjoy a meal. All are welcome!

“We want folks to come and enjoy the season here at Jake’s Landing’s Santa’s Village,” said owner Lars Jacobson. “Our family has always loved the Christmas season and we want to share some of that with the community.”

Wendy Jacobson, aka Mrs. Claus, hopes people will come and feel the spirit of this wonderful place.

“We love Christmas and everything it means in our lives," She said. "We have taught our ten children that Christ is at the center of Christmas. Enjoy the season and remember the reason.”

When you turn off Highwawy 1 and head up into the village, the first thing you’ll see is a nativity scene of the new born Christ child.

“We wanted the Nativity to be the first thing people see when they arrive and last thing when they leave," Lars emphasized. "We all can enjoy the magical part of Christmas, but let’s always remember the spiritual part is the part that’s real.”

Be sure to bring your camera! Every lighted building, every exhibit and every decoration will be waiting to be your back drop for a selfie or family photo. Whether it’s with the 10-foot blow up Santa Claus or Frosty the Snowman, Santa himself or the Nativity, all picture taking is free. So click away until your camera is full!

The Jacobson’s hope is that families and friends will come and enjoy a few hours these next two weekends visiting, eating, shopping and playing at Santa’s Village and Jake's Landing!
