Most people think Holiday World is the best attraction in Santa Claus, IN, but I have to let you in on a secret. My favorite place to visit is about a mile past Holiday World. It's Santa's Candy Castle! It's an actual castle full of CANDY! And they serve up specialty popcorns and frozen hot chocolate. It's my FAVORITE!

And, throughout the month of December, you can visit them in the evening for a free chestnuts roasting on an open fire event.

Experience the centuries-old Christmas tradition of roasting chestnuts over an open fire. This popular free event is currently in its 12th year and includes:
  • The history of America's oldest Christmas tradition
  • Demonstration of chestnut roasting over an open fire
  • Taste-testing of roasted chestnuts
  • Opportunity to try chestnut roasting yourself (great photo op!)
