Santa Claus is coming soon to the Kent Station shopping village.
Kent Station implemented an online booking system so customers can make a reservation for their Santa photos and visit rather than standing in line. The booking system proved popular during Covid restrictions so Kent Station staff decided to continue it.
Santa photo packages start at $20. Both digital and printed photos are available.
Kent Station will continue to take precautions by having hand sanitizer stations, an air purifier and making it easy for customers who get sick to cancel or reschedule in an effort to keep its Santas and customers healthy.
A third Santa will join the Kent Station team this season as Chukundi Salisbury, aka “Seattle Black Santa” will be present from 4 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3. Santa Cecil and Santa Dale will fill out the rest of the time slots.
Santa will be in a cozy cottage in front of the AMC Theatres, starting Nov. 26. Walk-in appointments will be taken if a time slot is available.
