Santa visits downtown Eau Claire


Eau Claire (WQOW) - It's not even thanksgiving yet but a jolly man in red is already making visits around the world. And today he stopped in Eau Claire.

Santa was meeting kids and taking pictures at the Pizza Plus in downtown Eau Claire today.

He made the trek from the North Pole to help out with a fundraiser for the Western Wisconsin Dairyland's homeless program. Kids could make ornaments, eat some cookies, make their Christmas lists, and even meet Santa himself.

"It's great to help out someone that might need a little bit extra," said Santa "It's always fun to help out and it helps the people."

Close one hundred people attended the event and all the proceeds will go to Western Wisconsin Dairyland's homeless program.
