City, South Plains Mall Prepare For Santa's Arrival

The holidays are ahead of schedule at South Plains Mall.

Santa Claus will arrive in a horse drawn carriage at noon Saturday. He'll be available for pictures at Grand Court until Christmas Eve. For every letter your child writes to Santa, and drops in the Grand Court mailbox, the mall will donate one dollar to Ronald McDonald House.

The Salvation Army Angel Tree is also up, near the Mervyn's store. You pick an angel and buy a gift for a needy child. Next Friday, the Toys for Tots bin will be set up near the former Luby's entrance.

Meanwhile, the city is preparing for Santa's arrival in Mackenzie Park. On Friday, crews started setting up the 60-foot tall Christmas tree that will rise out of the center of the village. Santa land will be open December 10th through the 23rd. It's open nightly from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. Admission is free.
