Santa’s Arrival Parade marches on in Springfield

Hampden County

A very special visitor arrived in Springfield Saturday, marking the 17th annual “Santa’s Arrival Parade” at the Eastfield Mall.

The parade kicked off at 11 a.m. Saturday morning, with the Ludlow High School Marching Band setting the pace for Rudolph to lead a parade of local children, dance schools, and Santa in his special Santa-mobile.

Samantha North, who brought her children to see Santa ahead of the holidays told 22News, “Oh I always love seeing them with Santa, watching them tell him what they want for Christmas, just the joy they have seeing him come in.”

The tour ended at Santa’s East Springfield headquarters at the mall’s center court.
