CASCADE, Colo. -

Families flocked to The North Pole in Cascade to visit Santa for last minute wishes.

Children got to meet Santa Claus and ride their favorite rides like the tilt-a-whirl and the big slide, which has been a staple at the park since it opened in 1956.

Park leaders say the park attracts generations of families who come to visit.

"We are a family-owned business for families and it's a great palce to come in the summer or winter to get that family time and there's just not a lot of places left like ours. So it's nostalgic and it's fun and it's family and it's Christmas," said North Pole Home of Santa's Workshop manager Austin Lawhorn.

The park's last day for the season is Christmas Eve. It's open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Christmas Eve the North Pole is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
