Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived at Mackle Park in grand style to spend a Saturday morning with a crowd of local children who eagerly waited to meet them.
After greeting the children, everyone enjoyed cookies and milk in the new Mackle Park Community Center. The children had an opportunity to have their photo taken with Santa, giving them another shot to tell him their wish list. Kids of all ages had fun exploring the helicopter up-close.
When the morning came to an end, Santa and Mrs. Claus were whisked away so they could return to their many Christmas duties at the North Pole.
This event was sponsored jointly by the Marco Island Parks and Recreation Department and Christmas Island Style.
