Places to See Santa in Hershey for Christmas 2021

Santa Photos at Hersheypark and Hershey's Chocolate World through Dec. 24

Christmas in Hershey is full of millions of lights, family-friendly rides at Hersheypark, cozy nights at The Official Resorts of Hersheypark and the best chocolate in the world. And of course, Santa is a huge part of the holiday season in The Sweetest Place On Earth!

Bring the family and pose with Santa for a memorable photo at these locations between now and Dec. 24:
