Santa coming to Macon Mall

Santa Claus will land Friday at Macon Mall led by his team of live reindeer.

Santa is expected to arrive at 6 p.m. at Sears’ lower level, according to a news release. Santa will then parade throughout the mall. A special surprise will be waiting for Santa — and everyone else — at the food court.

“I’m not sure what is happening, but the word is, it will be an example of how we hope to spread the cheer this holiday season,” mall marketing manager Lili Donaldson said in the release.

Santa’s new home for the next several weeks will be in the lower level Belk court.

Through Christmas Eve, photos will be available from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sundays and Christmas Eve.

Each child will receive a gift and a chance to win a $50 mall gift card, one given each week during Santa’s stay.For more information about other holiday giveaways, go to
