Santa's Public Appearance at Macy's Fox River - Mon., Nov. 26; 6:00 p.m.
Giving the reindeer time off for good behavior, Santa will arrive with a police escort in his shiny red tour bus and be greeted at the store. Santa welcomes one-and-all to join in the festivities as he reads The Night Before Christmas, visits with children of all ages and encourages everyone to put their letters to Santa in the Macy's Believe mailbox.
This is the fifth year Macy's "Believe" campaign invites children to mail letters to Santa using Macy's Santa Mail Letterboxes.
Macy's donates $1 for each letter mailed in store, up to $1 million, to Make-A- Wish.
