Santa and children share a special time together at the City of Greer's Breakfast with Santa at the Cannon Centre. GreerToday.com photographers will be there to record the event.
Text from Santa: "Confirmed for Greer USA tree lighting and breakfast."
City Park is all dressed up for the Christmas tree lighting and festivities, merchants have decorated their storefront windows and their stores are fully stocked for the most wonderful time of the year.
The weather appears to be cooperating with no rain forecast for this evening and Sunday for the Greer Christmas parade. Santa’s sleigh has GPS capabilities to maneuver low clouds.
