We're in our second year of providing photos with Santa at Grand Ridge Plaza, in addition to Santa's arrival, a menorah lighting ceremony, brunch with Santa, story time with Mrs. Claus, and several other merchant-hosted events. It's been rewarding to see the Issaquah community embrace our center as a part of their family holiday traditions. – Emily Ford, Senior Marketing Manager

Seven months of planning Santa’s Winter Woodland at Grand Ridge Plaza in Issaquah, Washington culminated on Black Friday when Santa Claus arrived by fire truck to greet nearly 300 of his biggest fans. All who attended enjoyed live music, hot beverages and sweet treats courtesy of Grand Ridge shops and eateries.

Following the celebration, Santa took his place in Grand Ridge’s very own Santa House, where he’ll be available for photos by local Santa photographer Arthur & Associates until December 24 when he moves on to undertake the biggest night of his year.
