This can really be a magical time of year. I mean all the great things to come. The Christmas lights....music and trips to see Santa.

That had to be the best part, taking my daughter to see Santa Claus. It was always a big day. There would be a parade....we would walk in with him. Then get our picture taken because we had to see him the first day.

Then we would get a child’s name off the Salvation Army Tree. We would always get a girl the same age as my daughter. She then picked out the present for this little girl. Faith also made plans to bring her dog back to see Santa later in the season.

Why am I taking this trip down memory lane? I saw this come out yesterday!

Santa will be making his grand appearance this Saturday at Westgate Mall. Yep, you read it right. The Jolly ol’ Saint One right here in Amarillo.

You can bring your kiddos. He will be escorted in a new Green Toyota Tundra from Street Toyota. This all kicks off at 11 am.

The first 200 children who visit Santa will receive a cookie from Great American Cookie & a free photo frame goes to the first 20 families that purchase a photo package valued at $35 or more.

Just so you know Santa’s Village will once again be located in Center Court. You can’t miss it. Make sure you make your plans to visit Santa starting on Saturday.

He will be at Westgate Mall until Christmas Eve when he will be making a very important trip around the world to visit all the good boys and girls.
