Santa Claus came.
And he conquered.
Santa and his reindeer helped usher in the holiday spirit at La Palmera Mall Wednesday, where thousands turned out to watch the North Pole’s most famous citizen arrive for the holidays during Santa’s Magical Illuminated Parade.
Four of Santa’s most prized reindeer were there. Also present were street fair performers and more floats than were imaginable to delight crowds of children waiting to start celebrating the holiday season.
The festivities then continued inside the mall with music, arts and crafts and Good St. Nick right in the middle of it all. He’ll be in Center Court at the mall waiting to meet good boys and girls until Dec. 24.
On that date, we’re told, his life will really start getting busy.
