Santa's Spending Time In Downtown North Adams
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – The elves may be busy in the North Pole but Santa Claus is spending his days on Main Street.
Standing in front of ATEF Fine Jeweler, Santa can be seen handing out candy canes and waving to cars.
“It’s so great to see the kids happy,” Santa said. “This is my first year out here."
Though he does receive a small stipend from the jeweler, the money is not the reason he stands on the street from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day.
“I’m having fun. You’re never too big for Christmas,” he said while cars beep horns at him and a woman reminds him that she has been good all year.
He began on Tuesday and will be out there every day until Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve will be an early day, he said. Of course, he has to get back to the North Pole.
Santa enjoys North Adams so much, he said he might return next year too.
