Santa and Comet the reindeer meet and greet
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
A little taste of the north pole arrived at Scheels, as people got a chance to meet Santa and one of his famous reindeer.
Saturday was the last day of the 5th Annual Live Reindeer Event.
Families from all over came to hang out with Santa and Comet.
Organizers say an event like this is perfect for this time of year.
“I think it is the season for Santa and his reindeer,” Scheels Marketing Leader Amy Beadle said.
“I think that's it something that most people, even adult people, don't get to experience in their life. So, something unique and a fun experience."
If you missed out don't worry because on Monday Mrs. Claus will be there reading “’Twas the Night Before Christmas” at 6 pm.
You'll also get to decorate Christmas cookies and make ornaments.
The event is open to kids ages 4 to 12.
