Kings Plaza celebrated the beginning of the holiday season on Saturday, when Santa Claus and shoppers congregated at the mall’s Center Court to light the its three Christmas trees.
Hundreds of shoppers turned out at the mall’s lower level to witness this year’s lighting, with kids cheering as Santa waved and wished all those gathered a merry Christmas.
But the trees, quite naturally, wouldn’t light without a little holiday spirit. Fortunately, Kings Plaza provided star-studded wands charged with Christmas magic, which, on Santa’s signal, were waved by the crowd, and the trees were promptly filled with light.
“You had to point the wand at the tree, for it to magically light up,” explained Denise Casey, who came out with her kids from Rockaway. “The kids loved it.”
Once Santa had concluded the tree lighting, he took the time to hang out with kids and pose for pictures, before everybody got back to the serious business of starting their Christmas shopping.
