The Camino Real Marketplace in Goleta is anticipating Santa’s arrival from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11 in the Food Court by the giant Christmas tree.

He will come back for a second visit on Sunday, Dec. 18 at the same time.

Please bring your cameras and take as many pictures as you like. This all happens during Farmers Market, and there will be music, too.

This is a free event open to everyone.
