ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (WBAY) – Santa Claus paid a visit Saturday to Bay Park Square Mall to take photos with children and ask them what is on their wish list.

He arrived in a big, red firetruck before taking a seat in center court of the mall.

“The children are what this is all about,” Saint Nick said. “It’s just a blessing to come here and visit with everyone.”

He also had a message for kids: be good.

Santa will be back at the mall from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 3 to eat cookies and color with children. There will also be face painting and balloon animals.

The mall will also hold an event for children with special needs to take photos with Santa. It will take place from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 4 through the Caring Santa program. Families can register by CLICKING HERE.

Those who take a picture with Santa are encouraged to make a donation to The Noerr Programs to Save the Children, a nonprofit that gives underserved children protection from harm.
