  • Philadelphia, PA-NJ (1888PressRelease) November 03, 2010 - The Montgomery Mall will be hosting a variety of special events to celebrate the 2010 holiday season. Beginning on Friday, Nov. 5, 2010, Santa will arrive at the mall and a Tweet Your Holiday Wish List to Santa program will commence.

    The mall will host its annual Santa Arrival Parade starting at 6 p.m. outside of the Salsa's Mexican Grill entrance where Santa will climb aboard a Montgomery Township Fire Department fire truck. He will ride around the mall's perimeter accompanied by the Montgomery Township Police Department and mall security officers. The parade will end at the LensCrafters mall entrance where Santa will descend from the fire truck, enter the mall for an indoor parade, and find his way to the Santa set in the mall's Elevator Court. Radio Disney and costumed characters will keep guests entertained at the mall's Sears Court until 8 p.m. Santa will be available to visit and get photos taken with local families and children throughout the holiday season.

    The mall will also launch a Tweet Your Holiday Wish List to Santa program on Nov. 5. Parents are welcome to sit down with their kids and tweet Santa their child's holiday wish list. This is a Web 2.0 alternative to writing Santa a tradition wish list letter and mailing it to the North Pole.
