Santa Claus will be getting away from the North Pole a few times this holiday season to visit downtown Mesa and join in the Merry Main Street festivities.
Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick will be taking Christmas wishes and be available for photos from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the following weekends at Mesa’s Christmas Tree, 1 N. Macdonald:
Visit with Santa for free and bring your phone or camera to take a picture. Don’t miss your chance to see Santa before he needs to get back to the North Pole to load up the sleigh, according to a release.
Merry Main Street offers numerous activities and events including the Winter Wonderland Ice Rink, open daily through Jan. 7; Bingles, the Gnome on the Roam; Holiday Happenings at Mesa Arts Center; Mesa’s Menorah, a 12-foot-tall Menorah which will have a light added nightly beginning Dec. 18 and Jack Frost’s Food Truck Forest on Fridays and Saturdays at Pioneer Park.
