WACO (November 8, 2012)--Santa Claus will arrive on his sleigh to Richland Mall Friday with a few tricks up his sleeve.
Shoppers will have an opportunity to download for free the new "Santa's Fun App" which will allow children and families to write letters to Santa, receive responses, and track his world-wide journey on Christmas Eve.
The first 300 children to visit Santa will get a free cookie from the Great American Cookie Company, hot chocolate from Auntie Anne's Pretzels, popcorn from Dippin' Dots, special holiday tattoos from W-Promotions and a special gift from the Arthritis Foundation.
Santa can be found at the mall Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. and on Sundays from noon until 6 p.m.
He will be on hand through Christmas Eve
This Friday, to welcome his arrival, there will be musical performances, a holiday parade and an annual Christmas Tree Lighting by Santa.
He is expected to arrive at 5:45 in the food court to begin the parade.
Photo packages will be available for families that are interested.
To download the app, visit the Android Market or iPhone App Store.
