City Santa is back! Santa is returning to Downtown Boise and he will be posing for free photos.

Donations to the Downtown Boise Association will benefit families at the Women’s and Children’s Alliance in Boise.

CBS 2 reports that employees of D.L. Evans Bank at the corner of 9th and Main Streets transform their lobby into the best holiday living room this side of the North Pole.

“Families are invited to bring their children to tell Santa their Christmas wishes, capture a treasured photo, and make the experience one the whole family will cherish,” DBA said.
