Cold temperatures and icy roads didn't stop people from coming out to the Mall of Abilene to see Santa's official arrival.
Families gathered at the entrance of the mall anxiously waiting for Santa Clause's arrival. Once he showed up, the people marched through the mall with Santa singing Christmas carols and dancing in stores.
They reached their destination at Women's Dillard's Courtyard where the children got a chance to sit on Santa's lap and share their holiday wishes in front of the Christmas tree.
Volunteers were with Santa to hand out free holiday goodie bags.
