Colonie Center welcomes Santa for the holiday season

Colonie Center was festive and bright Saturday morning as community members gathered to greet Santa upon his arrival for the holiday season.

After lighting the holiday tree inside the mall, Santa and his elves paraded down to his workshop outside of L.L. Bean, where he set up shop for photo opportunities and gave a listening ear for everyone’s wish lists.

In addition to sharing wish lists and taking holiday photos, children can also participate in arts and crafts or write letters to Santa, with the help of Santa’s elves.

You can visit Santa at Colonie Center through December 24. Photo opportunity timeframes with Santa can be found on the Colonie Center website.
