(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The holidays have officially arrived at East Hills Shopping Center.
On Saturday, the mall held their fourth annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. The event had several celebrity guests, including musical performances by social media stars Brooklyn and Bailey and Ashlund Jade.
Of course, the most anticipated arrival of the night was Jolly Old St. Nicholas. Santa Claus came just in time to help light the tree and take pictures with several families.
Those who organized the event said they look forward to it each year.
"Every year it involves lots of great entertainment, lots of celebrities and autograph signing and all these types of things," David Sandy, Tree Lighting Ceremony host, said. "It all comes down to the lighting of the Christmas tree which officially kicks-off the holiday shopping season here at East Hills Shopping Center."
