Santa’s Village Ticket Giveaway {Family Pack For 2 Winners}

As the last few weeks of summer are upon us I wanted to share about a fun place to take the family, Santa’s Village AZoosment Park in East Dundee, Illinois. This park is ideal for families with young children. The park features 16 rides, over 5 animal exhibits, sleigh and pony rides, and live entertainment. My family will be visiting there later this month and I will share a review of the park then but I wanted to run my giveaway now so the winners could enjoy the park while the weather was still nice (though they are open through October).
