Thanksgiving may still be two weeks away, but Santa Claus is already making his way down to southern Denton County for several large events.
Here’s where to see Santa over the next couple weeks in the area:
Holiday Festival at Music City Mall Lewisville, 12-4 p.m. Nov. 20: Santa will make a grand entrance by helicopter at noon at the mall. Kids will be able to get their photos with Santa, see other costumed characters and enjoy hot cocoa, Christmas music and performances, free balloon animals and more.
Our Village Glows at The Shops at Highland Village from 5-8 p.m. Nov. 20: Soon after his larger-than-life entrance in Lewisville, St. Nick will hop on a fire truck and head over to the annual “Our Village Glows” holiday celebration, which was canceled last year.
