EAST PEORIA, Ill.--Santa Claus has come to town. Well, at least to Bass Pro Shop.

On Friday, Santa, his reindeer, and elves opened up Santa's Wonderland at the Bass Pro Shop in East Peoria.

Santa will be at Bass Pro from now until Christmas Eve.

Kids can get a picture with Santa, play games, and make fun crafts, all for free.

Parents say they love having Santa at Bass Pro.

"They offer so many great things for the kids here. Santa, games, he came in on a boat which was awesome. It's just been wonderful and it's free for families so it's great. Great, wholesome family fun," said parent Sicily Auen.
