If you loved the witches during Halloween, you will LOVE the elves at Christmastime! For our family, the Christmas season hasn't begun until we've wandered around Gardner Village and looked at the elves! Scroll to the bottom to view a 3 minute video of the Gardner Village elves!
Gardner Village has it all this year: ice skating elves, bird watching elves, cookie making elves, a naughty and nice list (so make sure to look for your name!....Uh, oh! I found mine!), tree decorating elves, an elf band, and much much more!
While we were there, the Village Christmas Shop was marking many of their ornaments and Christmas decorations down to half off! Make sure to stop in and see what kind of deals they have going while you are there!
Every year the elves are placed in a different spot, so the scavenger hunt is never the same from year to year. CLICK HERE to download and print out the scavenger hunt form. This year is the best elf display yet! (NOTE: There are a few vacant shops at Gardner Village, and when we peeked in the windows, we noticed that a few elves have taken up residence there! Make sure you don't pass them by!)
After you complete the scavenger hunt form, make sure to take it to Sweet Afton's for a sugar stick! Sweet Afton's is located at the end of the main path.
Gardner Village awarded their Front Porch Award to The Bead Farm, and for good reason! This cute little shop is decorated like a Christmas Gingerbread House.
