CRRC’s North Pole Village Opens Today with Live Broadcast by 92.1 KNBT FM

Four-year-old Jaxon Derscheid, son of CRRC Executive Director Jason Derscheid, shares a little of his Christmas spirit with Santa Claus, whose reindeer just landed at North Pole Village.

Disc jockeys Rachel and Stuart from 92.1 KNBT FM will broadcast live from North Pole Village at the Community Resource and Recreation Center of Canyon Lake’s (CRRC) Rec Center, 125 Mabel Jones Dr., starting at 5 p.m. today.

The annual Christmas event for children runs from 6 to 9 p.m. on Dec. 9, 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18.

Tickets are $5.

Each child who enters the sparkly, Christmas-themed village will receive a ‘passport’ that entitles them to shop for Christmas decorations and holiday items at a country store, ice fish, conduct science experiments with master gardeners, get a book at a library, write letters to Santa Claus at a post office, enjoy a live petting zoo, get their faces painted, decorate cookies at a bakery, and visit ‘Toyland’ to adopt a homeless stuffed animal that firefighters will provide with a ‘health check.’

Santa Claus is available for free photo opportunities although for $5 parents and guardians can purchase a photo.

Also included at North Pole Village are hayrides and concessions and a live nativity scene (two nights only).

CRRC Executive Director Jason Derscheid said over 200 community volunteers worked to make North Pole Village, which was canceled last year due to COVID-19, a reality.

“Lots of people are very excited,” he said. “We’re expecting a pretty good turnout.”
