Santa Claus makes a stop in Johnson City

JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL)- Santa Claus made an appearance at the Mall at Johnson City on Saturday.

That’s where he enjoyed some cookies and milk while visiting with kids from the community.

SANTA REACTIONBuddy the Elf was also on hand to spread Christmas cheer. Children were smiling from ear to ear as they took in the magical excitement of the holiday season.

General Manager for the Mall at Johnson City, Tembra Aldridge said the events with Santa are some of her favorite events. Aldridge said, “Whenever you see a child with that sparkle in their eyes, that just means everything.”

Aldridge added that finally getting to see the kids “sit on Santa’s lap and to see the smiles on their faces is just awesome.”

This is just one of the events that the mall is planning with Santa Claus this Christmas season. Kids will also have the opportunity to meet the big guy himself at Sunday’s Sensitive Santa event. Sensitive Santa is a sensory-friendly event that gives children with special needs a more peaceful environment to come visit Ole Saint Nick.

Sensitive Santa will be held at the Mall at Johnson City on Sunday, December 6th from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.
