LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Adults aren't the only ones getting into the Christmas spirit over at Valley View Mall. Children got the chance to welcome Santa with the annual "Santafest" celebration Saturday.
The event included waking up and meeting Santa, as well as a photo shoot and activities for the kids.
Organizers at Valley View mall say this event is a tradition that gets better every year.
"Seeing them go from little ones and growing up and bringing their younger siblings to the event and seeing them pass on the tradition, it's so much fun to see them do that," said Laurie Cafe, marketing director at Valley View Mall. "And the community really appreciates a free event that they can just come to and they get to play, make crafts, have a good time and be home before nap time."
If you missed Saturday's event, the mall will be hosting more like it over the next month. You can find a list of those events at www.myvalleyview.com.
