We won’t be completely back to normal for Christmas this year, but Santa Claus or his elves will be making several stops in the Shreveport and Bossier City area over the next several weeks. You might be able to get photos of children up close with Santa at some of these spots. But some will be requiring social distancing. Most are moving back to what you would normally expect. And you can bet folks will be out in droves to get that precious photo. That was not available to most of us last year because of the pandemic.

Looking for More People to Be Santa's Helpers

There has been a shortage of people who will be Santa’s helpers this year. But several will be making stops at local businesses and holiday events across the region. If you are qualified, you will find plenty of opportunities all around the region. But be prepared to pass a background check.

Do I Have to Schedule an Appointment with Santa?

Some of these places do require you to schedule your appointment ahead of time, but most of them are on a first-come, first-served basis. You will likely have to be patient to get to meet the jolly one.


What's the Best Way to Get a Great Photo with Santa?

One of my best tips for parents is to be sure to bring some toys or activities you can play while waiting in line. If you don’t, your child might get irritable and that won’t help in getting a great photo with Santa. Keep your youngster occupied in the line so the time will go by fast.

Good luck and Merry Christmas.
