Santa Claus is coming to downtown.
Inland Octopus is making preparations to host ol’ St. Nick.
The Main Street toy store is partnering with the Walla Walla Community College chapter of Phi Beta Lambda, an association of students preparing for careers in business, for visits with Santa.
The first appearance will be Dec. 1 when he rides into town on the final float of the Macy’s Parade of Lights. The float is created by Phi Beta Lambda. After the parade, Santa will head to the toy store, 7 E. Main St., to hear Christmas wishes.
He will make return visits to the store Sundays, Dec. 2, 9 and 16, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free digital images will be provided to participants via email. For more details, contact store owner Bob Catsiff at 526-0115 or email@example.com.
