Bismarck - Bring in the red, white, and of course-- plenty of Christmas cheer.
Santa arrived at the Kirkwood mall and is kicking off the Christmas season.
In addition to Santa-- there's a scavenger hunt that kids can do.
There are footprints to find... that will take you from Santa's land into iKeating furniture, and the kids can do a scavenger hunt to see where Santa slept the night before.
Santa is here now and all the way up to Christmas Eve- so kids can give him that Christmas wish list.
Santa Claus says, "And then I have to go back to the North Pole, I got to get back there ya know, so my elves will have the sleigh all ready to go and everything loaded and have the reindeer harnessed up and away I go."
There are a bunch of activities that will be leading up to Christmas--you can even bring your cat or dog to visit Santa as well.
