MISSOULA – Thanksgiving is next week, but Southgate Mall in Missoula is gearing up for Christmas early.
Lights are strung over the entrance, Christmas music fills the halls and Santa even dropped by on Friday for a visit.
Hundreds gathered to welcome Chris Cringle and watch a performance by On Center Performing Arts.
They welcomed Santa with a song and dance and staff handed out cookies and a surprise gift to kids.
