Santa is really busy this December, popping up in several Tarrant County locations. He’s got treats, treasures, and, of course, the traditional photo session in store. We’ve made a list of where Santa can be found this month (and we’ve checked it twice), so gather your littles, and go search for Saint Nick!
Santa at the Mall
Hulen Mall: Located in the center court of the mall, this Santa will not only take photos with your kiddos (through December 24), but also with your beloved cats and dogs (Monday nights through December 12)! You can even make a reservation online to avoid some of the wait.
North East Mall: While supplies last, the Santa at the North East Mall will present your child with his or her own pair of reindeer ears. You can find him in the center court now through December 24. From 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on December 4, Santa has set aside special time to take photos with and bring cheer to children with special needs.
The Parks at Arlington: Your kids can enjoy interactive games and surprises (rumor has it Po from Kung Fu Panda is involved in this somehow) as they go on a quest to meet with Jolly Old Saint Nick.
Ridgmar Mall: You can make online reservations to visit Santa at Ridgmar. The North Pole wants to be prepared for your visit!
