Santa Returns to Yakima Valley

YAKIMA, WASH.- Santa made a surprise appearance at the Valley Mall.

Santa has been a holiday tradition at the mall since the 1970's, and to add to the man in the red suite making his first appearance in Yakima this year, the mall put together several holiday festivities for families.

"At today's event we of course have Santa in his brand new workshop, we have a cocoa bar, a hot cider bar, we have face painting, balloon twisting, we have a craft station and of course we have letters to Santa. We want to make sure that we are welcoming Santa with this big bang," said Bryan Kozu, Yakima Valley Mall Marketing Manager.

Santa will be at the mall until Christmas Eve.

There will also be several other events happening at the mall for the holidays.
