Rantoul -- Although reindeer will be touching down on roofs across the world on Christmas Eve, a Rantoul ranch gives visitors a chance to see the legendary animals before then.
Hardy's Reindeer Ranch has been hosting reindeer tours for the past 18 years. Visitors can walk through the reindeer pen, while petting, feeding, and even kissing the gentle giants.
"This is an Alaskan reindeer ranch on a Midwest farm," said owner Julie Hardy. "It's something people don't see everyday and I think we make believers out of a lot of grown-ups."
Tours are $4 a person and will continue through December 28th.
