Santa arrival & tree lighting set for November 12 at Chesterfield Towne Center

On Friday, November 12, be one of the first to see Santa this year at the third annual Santa Arrival & Tree Lighting.

This free holiday kick-off event has quickly become a holiday tradition for many families, so you won't want to miss capturing the looks of the kids as they spot the Jolly Old Elf for the first time this year.

Following his arrival, he'll light our outdoor holiday tree filled with thousands of LED lights.

The event will also serve as the kick-off of the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign, and will be hosted by Kat Simons of Lite 98

The event is presented by Pearson Honda, and sponsored by Call Federal Credit Union, ChildTime Learning Centers, and La Petite Academy.

Guests will also enjoy holiday music and giveaways.

The event will take place from 6 -7pm outside near Red Robin.

The event will be moved indoors near Coldwater Creek if there is inclement weather.
