Santa & Mrs. Claus visit Scripps Ranch
The famous couple from the North Pole left the sleigh at home, choosing to drive a pickup truck to the market instead, unloading Santa’s special chair so he could sit while visiting with local children.
There was much excitement in the air as Santa and Mrs. Claus made their way into the market and set up to listen to Christmas gift wishes from the kids in the crowd. One-by-one, each was given special attention as they whispered in Santa’s ear.
Other highlights on this special day at the market included a raffle for a new kid’s bike, pony rides, a Jumpee with a slide, live Christmas music, free crafts and a special holiday treasure hunt.
