The Shops at Willow Bend


Throughout the holiday season, visitors to The Shops at Willow Bend are transported to a winter wonderland when they step inside the spectacular holiday Ice Palace. Inspired by the magic of winter, the Ice Palace features a 30-foot globe encircled with a series of majestic arches and smaller globes that appear to be carved from ice.  Visitors will be immersed with magical vignettes of polar animal footage and, upon entering the largest dome, see and feel falling snow and a captivating video and light show.  Before leaving the Ice Palace, visitors will have the opportunity to have their photo taken on the Ice Throne and with the big guy himself.  Plus, each visitor will receive a free gift just for visiting.

Bring the family to enjoy one of the most beloved traditions of the season-a visit with Santa.  We’ll capture the moment with high-quality digital photos that will last for generations to come.  Photo keepsakes, frames and accessories are available to make your picture with Santa even more perfect.  Photo packages start at $22.
