A new holiday tradition officially began Thursday at Belvidere's Summerfield Zoo, and your family needs to check it out this weekend.

Summerfield Zoo's Christmas Town features visits with Santa and his reindeer, awesome family photo opportunities, baby reindeer flight training sessions, Mrs. Claus' Snack Shop and a whole lot of holiday shopping! Just check this out...

Christmas Town At Summerfield Zoo will be open Thursdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Fridays 3 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through December 23, 2018.

WIFR shared a glimpse of Christmas Town at Summerfield Zoo yesterday, and I can't wait to take my kids there.
