Imagination Mama entertained the crowd with stories and books while they waited. She was dressed in her best Christmas finery, with her face and hair adorned with signs of the season.
Santa arrived to the cheers of the waiting children and took his rightful place at the Santa House in the Sears court area. The children then lined up to take their turns on his knee. Santa will be at Foothills Mall during regular mall hours. Visits are free and visitors have the option of purchasing photo packages.
Leslie Karnowski went to see Santa and took these photos for Blount Today.
