Thought the Santa at North Pole's Santa Claus House deserved his own photo.

[Adam Scott Lankford, 04/13/2007]

Guinness has recognized this Santa as the World's Largest: 42 feet tall on an 8-foot base. According to legend, he was built for the 1962 Seattle World's Fair and weighs 900 pounds.

North Pole - Photo Opportunity

A couple of painted panels form a very colorful reminder of the town of North Pole. It's right behind the visitor center across from the Santa house.

We like that, even in Alaska, you must resort to painted plywood to complete the North Pole illusion.
