With Christmas just 10 days away, Santa Claus is keeping a very busy schedule but he'll still make stops in Tuscaloosa before the big day.

Children will have a chance to see the jolly old man in red with the beautiful white beard and tell him what they want for Christmas. He'll visit five different locations over the next week so take advantage and see St. Nick before he heads back to the North Pole.
