There will be lots of fun at Stonebriar Centre for good girls and boys this year -- and maybe even a few naughty folks. The elves have been hard at work, adding a special sparkle to Santa's holiday home at the Frisco mall. Santa's New North Pole is a winter wonderland filled with candy cane swirls and stripes, toys and snow. There's even a mischievous little elf who sits up top and drops snow flurries on the visitors below.
Welcome Santa to his new seasonal home on Friday, November 11 starting at 6:30 p.m. Mr. Claus and his friends are hosting an Open House and one lucky guest will get to help Santa unlock the gate to his new home. Santa will read a special holiday story and visitors can enjoy refreshments and some make-and-take crafts.
The New North Pole is located in Stonebriar Centre on the lower level near Dillard's and Sears.
