Jolly ole’ Saint Nick will make this visit to North Hills a fond memory that will be treasured for years to come as he lights the most magnificent tree in town! Starting at 4pm, North Hills will be filled with activities for the whole family!  Trackless train rides, kids crafts, a vendor village, live performances and Christmas music from the North Tower Band will fill the Commons!  At 6 o’clock, Santa Claus will come to Midtown to light the most magnificent tree in town!  Afterwards, he will stick around to visit with little boys and girls about what they have on their Christmas wish list.  This celebration marks the beginning of the Christmas season at North Hills!
