Santa Claus is Coming in Town!

When my kiddos were itty-bitty it was always an adventure trying to plan and prepare for our annual photo with Santa Claus! But, once we made it out the door, there was never an ounce of disappointment. Children love to write out their letter to Santa and dress in their reindeer sweaters and sparkly dresses to just have a glimpse of the magic of Mr. Claus. As parents, we can look back and remember all the fun we had trying to make that moment possible when we see a photo of our sweet children on his lap.

It’s a dream come true to children all around the globe to sit on his lap – sharing their Christmas list with him, while admiring his white whiskers and velvet-red suit with big black boots. Thankfully Fort Wayne’s malls understand the value and enjoyment in this experience and are offering “visit with Santa” hours again this year.

Jefferson Pointe has embraced their unique outdoor environment and are excited to announce this year’s newest feature to their Santa experience – live reindeer!
