I know, I know, we just passed Halloween and we are still a couple of weeks away from Thanksgiving so why are we talking about going to the mall to get a picture with Santa? Well, because it's never too early to talk about going to the mall to get a picture with Santa. This weekend you can get a jump on those photos at Cielo Vista Mall.

Cielo Vista Mall will be welcoming Santa today at noon and he'll be available for those adorable photos with your kids and family until Christmas Eve. Personally, I remember when my kids were little I couldn't wait to get their photos taken with Santa. I would run them over there as soon as I found out the guy in the red suit was available. To be honest, I wasn't super on top of getting things done I just didn't want to have to try to squeeze in a Santa photo late in the holiday season when everyone was already stressed out.

Cielo Vista Mall does require masks inside the mall in the common area. Photo staff is required to wear them, but you'll have the option to be socially distanced from Santa or sit on his lap (with or without masks) when taking photos.
