JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown Area YMCAs would like to announce the arrival of Santa Claus at the Chautauqua Mall.

Santa arrived on Friday with his elves at the main entrance of the mall near the food court.Santa is available for visits and photos with children of all ages. The Santa photo set is located in front of The Bon Ton at the center of the mall.

Photo and visitation hours for this weekend will be Friday noon to 8 p.m., Saturday noon to 8 p.m., and Sunday 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and will continue through December 24.

New this year is the Santa Express Mail located at the center of the mall at the Santa set entrance. This exciting unit is an illuminated mail box that has a connected chute leading to the mall rooftop.

Children can drop off their letters to Santa there and press a button which magically sends the letter to the North Pole.

A personalized letter from Santa mailed to children’s houses before Christmas is also available for $3. For more information, visit the Santa set during operational hours.
