PUTNEY, Vt. (AP) - Santa's Land is open once again.
The Billewicz family had been following the story of the Christmas-themed park in Putney, Vt., since December 2011, when the 54-year-old attraction was closing. They recently acquired the park.
They reopened Santa's Land on July 7 for seven days a week until Labor Day. After that, the park will be open weekends until Christmas.
Lillian Billewicz tells the Brattleboro Reformer they family wants to leave a lot of the attractions, yet restore those that need attention. The old black train has been scraped down and redone. The sleighs have been repainted.
The park now has a clothing store for infants and toddlers. Pathways are now lined with huge candy canes.
New selections will be on the snack bar menu.
