You can always catch the jolly old elf in the typical spots, but we got word that he and his helpers are hanging out in some open-air arenas, ready to take pictures with the little ones and those with fur.

Thompson's Farm in Conway is hosting Santa in their Winter Wonderland every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, starting today and running through December 23, 2012 from 6 to 9 p.m.  The events will include all sorts of activities.  You can check out the flier on their Facebook page here.
