KENTWOOD, Mich. — It's a sure sign that the holidays are near as Woodland Mall has announced Santa will be back at the mall starting Wednesday.

Santa will be in Woodland Mall's Arctic Forest from November 11 to December 24. You must make an appointment online in order to meet Santa.

While Santa will not be giving hugs or high-fives this year, children can sit on a bench next to him to ensure everyone can stay healthy.

New this year- Santa will also be able to read your kid a book. For those who are immune compromised or have special needs, there will also be virtual options to visit with Santa.

You can bring your pets to visit with Santa on Mondays from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. through December 15. Any pet is allowed as long as it is on a leash or kept in a crate.

The mall will open for Black Friday at 7 a.m. It will also offer 12 Days of Deals from December 1-12 on its Facebook page.
