Just over three weeks away from Thanksgiving but Santa isn't waiting for that.

According to WIVB, Santa will make his triumphant return this Friday at the Walden Galleria Mall!

You can grab a photo with Santa from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The ceremonial tree lighting will take place at 5 p.m. as well, so it'll basically be the kickoff of the holiday season!
