“Santa Claus is coming to town…” and he’s ready for picture time! Put on your holiday best and snap a photo with Old Saint Nick. 


Santa knows that for those who love all things outdoors, Cabela’s is where to go now through Dec. 24. Upon arriving to the store, head straight to the Bass Pass Ticket Depot to get your Bass Pass. A Bass Pass is required and provides a time slot to see Santa, allowing you to explore Santa's Wonderland® or shop the store while waiting in a virtual line.

Each Bass Pass holder will receive a free 4x6 picture with Santa. There’s often other free activities and crafts so this is a Santa experience worth the drive. Tip: go on the weekdays to avoid the lines! Get the details.
