Holiday Animals

During the holiday season, two of Santa’s live reindeer—Dasher and Blitzen—live at Swansons from mid-November through Christmas Eve. You can bring the family and friends for a visit with real, live reindeer and create some magical holiday memories. Curley (the extremely curious) Camel joins Dasher and Blitzen for some entertaining holiday hijinks.

Did you know that a camel’s top lip is split into two parts that are used, along with the bottom lip, like dexterous fingers? Did you know that reindeers’ new antlers are covered with ‘velvet’ that eventually gets shed? During twice-daily feeding times you can get up close to these special animals and see for yourself!
