Santa Claus is coming to town, kicks off festivities with milk, cookies

Claus to bestow holiday cheer starting Nov. 5 at Galleria at Sunset  

NORTH POLE – Henderson’s kids better watch out; they’d better not cry; they’d better not pout – Santa’s due to arrive.

Santa Claus is coming to the Galleria at Sunset Saturday, Nov. 5. He will arrive at the Food Court at 11 a.m. with milk and cookies to share with all his favorite boys and girls. The event will include face painting, balloon artists and story time with Santa. Kids will also receive a free gift bag.

“Santa just loves milk and cookies,” said Mrs. Claus. “He can’t wait to get out to Henderson to join the kids for some milk and cookies, story time and more. The Galleria at Sunset is the first stop on his agenda, and he’s eager to start making his list and checking it twice.”

Santa knows children have lots of wishes, so he’s encouraging them to register with guest services now through Nov. 3. There will be wish lists available for children to fill out prior to meeting Santa.

Santa will also find out who’s naughty and who’s nice by visiting and taking photos with children in the Galleria’s lower level at Center Court from Nov. 5 until Dec. 24. Visit for photo hours.

“You wouldn’t think so since he is always so careful to avoid being seen on Christmas Eve, but Santa just loves attention and seeing his name in print so he can share his holiday spirit,” Mrs. Claus added. “He wants to meet as many boys and girls, reporters and photographers as possible.”
