Santa's furry friends are the star of the show each and every year here at the SnowDome! The happiness and health of the animals is our upmost priority, read on to find out a bit more about them.
The SnowDome works with long term partners, Reindeer Park, every year to provide happy and healthy animals at Santa's Winter Wonderland. This partnership now spans 9 years of working closely together to bring a wonderful selection of animals for adults and children to meet and learn about.
The reindeer and other animals live year round at Reindeer Park and are lovingly cared for by Martin Plunkett (owner of Reindeer Park) and his team. At the close of the event at the end of December, all of Santa's animals return to their farm land home at Reindeer Park in Sutton Coldfield, a stones throw away from the SnowDome (7 miles away.)
Martin and his team at Reindeer Park have kept reindeer for over 20 years and they maintain a thriving heard. The deer are his and his families pride and joy.
Here are some photos of the animals at the event.
