Eaton's Once Upon a Christmas

Christmas carollers greet visitors to Eaton's Once Upon a ChristmasCapturing the magic and snowflake
make-believe of the season!

Since 1987, the Eaton's Once Upon a Christmas exhibit has delighted visitors, young and old. The exhibit continues to be a major attraction for those who visit the WDM during the holiday season. It offers an opportunity for parents to share with their children memories of their childhood and it allows children to enter to a world of make-believe and magic.

We encourage you to visit the Saskatoon WDM with your family and enjoy this wonderful Saskatchewan tradition.

Thank you to our volunteers and staff for all of the time and effort put in to preparing this display.
