Winter Wonderland

The Winter Wonderland will take place in and around Loranger Square, and will host activities such as ice skating, photos with Santa, great local vendor offerings, and the Macy's Believe campaign for Make-A-Wish, where we invite children to write a letter to Santa!

Make A Wish

Write your letter to Santa!

Christmas Magic in Monroe has partnered with the Macy’s Believe Campaign for Make-A-Wish! The campaign invites children of all ages to write letters to Santa, and Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish for every letter. Bring your letter to the Winter Wonderland and deposit it at Santa’s Pavilion!
