He’s Making a List and Checking It Twice…. Santa is at Eastridge!

In less than 33 days Christmas will be here! What better way to start he holiday season, than a visit to the mall. Oh, the nostalgia! The tree in Center Court, the music, all the hustle and bustle. A Christmas Story, the movie always comes to mind. How can we forget the epic mall Santa scene, and Ralphie’s hopes for a Red Ryder air rifle.


The Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 17 was truly unforgettable (video coming soon!). If you didn’t have a chance to attend the festivities check out our Facebook page for a recap, videos, and up to date event information. Eastridge hosted a wide variety of performers for this year’s ceremony. Eastridge extends a huge round of applause to all that helped make the ceremony so memorable.
