Santa Claus, accompanied by several of his closest elf friends, came to Clarksville recntly and set up shop in the center of Governor's Square Mall, where he will be talking with children of all ages in the hopes of getting some gift ideas to deliver on Christmas morning.
To celebrate Santa's arrival, Andra Ruffier and her staff at Governor's Square Mall scheduled an eventful day with bounce houses, a performance by the dancers from CAST & Crowns Studio and more.
“This is an exciting day,” Ruffier said. “Santa arrived from the North Pole this morning, and he rode our very own Polar Express through Governor's Square Mall all the way to center court. The good news is that he will be here daily until Christmas Eve. So, we want all the kids in Clarksville to get their Christmas wish list together and find out if they've been naughty or nice.”
Ruffier says they usually get a pretty good crowd on opening day. Altogether, more than 4,000 kids came out to the mall to visit Santa last year. She thinks this year will be even busier.
