Christmas at Lottemaa is a favorite of Estonian children. This theme park outside of Pärnu recreates the village where Lotte, the puppy dog inventor, lives with her friends. For Christmas, Gadgetville turns into a winter wonderland with Christmas decorations lighting up the houses, gardens, and forest paths of the park. Even if the weather outside is frightful, it is guaranteed to be warm and delightful indoors at Lottemaa! This year Christmas at Lottemaa is celebrated on the 16th and 17th of December, the 25th through the 30th of December, and January 5th to 7th.
