Santa is headed to Wasilla on Dec. 16 for an annual pre-Christmas celebration at Creekside Plaza (1830 Parks Hwy.) in Wasilla. The event includes a chance to chat with St. Nick, while benefiting the local Food Pantry and Salvation Army.
There will also be live pony rides and a petting zoo from 1-4 p.m., along with an ugly sweater contest, prizes, free hot coco, snacks and coffee.
Cookies will be provide courtesy of House of Bread, and Santa will hand out candy canes, along with first-come-first-serve free Christmas socks.
Attendees can earn three tickets for the pony rides by donating a toy (or at least $1) to the Salvation Army. To enjoy the petting zoo, people are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for the local food pantry.
The event includes special deals on last minute shopping from more than 20 local merchants at Creekside Plaza. Click here for more information.
