This sounds cahutttteeeee!
If you love the holidays, and if you love nothing more than going over the top with festive fun and holiday decorations, then you need to visit Elf Mountain at WAFI.
Famous for a HUGE Christmas tree, the festivities kick off on December 5 with the tree lighting and carol singing and runs all the way through until December 24, with Santa’s grotto, arts and crafts, Christmas movies, and even a ski simulator! (We kid you not!)
WAFI is answering every Christmas wishlist in the book – don’t miss it!
The Christmas tree lighting and carol singing will be magical

Running until December 24, prepare to be blown away. This will be a festive display like no other featuring elves hard at work in an actual Elf Village, which surrounds the stunning tree!
