Santa Claus is coming to Scottsdale early this year.

On Saturday, Dec. 1 and 8, The Promenade Scottsdale, Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and North Scottsdale Road, will spread Christmas cheer by giving children the opportunity to take photos with Santa.

A keepsake print is free when participants donate food to the food drive benefiting the Harvest Compassion Center.

In addition, there will be a free “make and take an ornament” activity for kids.

Bach to Rock will provide holiday music, and a face painter will be on site noon-3 p.m. The event begins each day at 11 a.m. in front of Nordstrom Rack at The Promenade Scottsdale, 16427 N. Scottsdale Road.

The Harvest Compassion Center is collecting hygiene items, canned fruit, canned mixed vegetables, boxed meals such as Tuna Helper, boxed crackers, canned tuna, canned chicken, canned juice and baby items (diapers and wipes).
