Bass Pro has Santa & Mermaids - Oh My!

Bass Pro Shops at the Siverton Casino puts on a great photo opt with Santa and a fun mermaid show!

Kids can explore the magic of the season at Bass Pro Shops, which hosts a free 4x6 photo ops with Santa, holiday crafts each weekend, model train displays, the remote-control car track, and all kinds of games and activities. We went about 6 times last year and only once was there a family ahead of us to sit with Santa. The last time was on Christmas Eve and I had them take like 4 photos till it was perfect...their Super nice.

After we have our Santa photo shoot we all head over to the casino area where there's a mermaid show which is free to watch, and it is spectacular. There are 4,000 beautiful tropical fish mingled in with a group of ex-Olympic synchronized swimmers. They really do a beautiful job, it is well worth the effort to go and see this. The show itself is about 10 minutes and it starts up again after a 15 minute break.

Basic Info on Bass Pro: Whether you live for the outdoors or not, Bass Pro Shop is a real treat to visit: The 165,000-square-foot, two-story building is built of logs and rocks, reminiscent of old-style Adirondack hunting lodges. The rock fireplace is cozy, as are the rocking chairs out on the "front porch." A trout stream meanders through the store, populated by brook, brown, and the colorful rainbow trout.

Kids flock to the 40,000-gallon freshwater aquarium, which is fed by a canyon waterfall and features fish native to the area. They also can try their hand (or feet!) on the a rock-climbing wall or the indoor archery range.
