Here comes Santa Claus! As proud sponsors of the McAllen Holiday Parade, La Plaza is excited to kick off the holidays with the Grand Arrival of Santa!
On Friday, November 3, Santa will land at the McAllen International Airport via DPS helicopter at approximately 4 p.m. Once cleared through customs, Santa will travel down 10th street in his sleigh, expertly crafted by City of McAllen personnel, and park outside the Savor La Plaza Mall entrance. Santa is sponsored by Gymboree, Despicable Me 3 and Villa del Sol Construction.
The McAllen Memorial High School marching band, cheerleaders and Prancers dance team as well as models from Missy’s Modeling Studio will accompany Santa during the parade where McAllen Mayor Jim Darling, McAllen ISD Superintendent Dr. Jose A. Gonzalez and La Plaza Mall’s Isabel Rodriguez will officially welcome Santa to McAllen and La Plaza Mall and accept his “good list.”
Children and families are invited to parade through the mall to Santa’s new home, in the recently opened expansion wing, for the tree lighting, music, crafts and snacks until 6:30 p.m.
COST: As always, visits with Santa are free. Please adhere to the photo policy when visiting Santa.
