WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- It's a bird, it's a plane. No. It's a helicopter with Santa Claus inside.
Santa made quite an entrance at Independence Mall this weekend, and people were pleased.
A helicopter flew Santa to the mall, where he and his workers were greeted by a parade and the Polar Express.
The mall is decked out in Christmas spirit as presents, candy canes and Christmas trees light up center court.
Crowds of families lined up at Santa's Candy Court to meet the man from the North Pole. He will take Christmas requests Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. through Christmas Eve.
He hopes your name doesn't land on the naughty list.
