I can’t believe that the Briarwood Mall Santa Arrival celebration is today, Thursday, November 6. We have attended the Santa Arrival several times (I wrote about Santa’s Arrival in 2011).
After today, Santa will be at the mall each day through Christmas Eve. Also, don’t forget to buy your tickets for the Mall’s Santa Breakfast (details below). The mall also offers Caring Santa program designed for special needs children to have a chance to meet Santa with less waiting and less crowds. Details are included in the press release below:

ANN ARBOR, November 4, 2014 — Briarwood Mall will kickoff the holiday season with a Housewarming Party for Santa Claus on Thursday, November 6 from 6-8:00 p.m. in the Sears Court.
Local Jazz vocalist Brad McNett will set the festive mood as he performs Sounds of the Holidays. There will be appetizers from California Pizza Kitchen and an appearance by PAWS the Detroit Tigers mascot. Kids can enjoy refreshments and visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus before taking commemorative photos at the Santa Set, sponsored by Gymboree, Germain of Ann Arbor, and Goldfish Swim School.
“The arrival of Santa to the mall is an event we look forward to every year,” said Denise Murray, director of marketing and business development. “This is always such a great opportunity for families to have fun kicking off the holiday season together.”
Families will also be able to purchase advance tickets for Breakfast with Santa, which is set for Saturday, December 13 from 8-10:00 a.m. Tickets are $20 each, and 100% of the proceeds will go toward the #ChadTough Fund for pediatric brain tumor research in honor of Chad Carr, the 4-year-old grandson of former U-M football coach Lloyd Carr who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.
