Oceanside CA— Santa made his annual appearance, arriving by parachute, at the Mission Marketplace for the Jingle Bell Jump. The event was cut a little short by the rain that passed through the area on Saturday but most of the kids in attendance got the chance to feel snow crunching under their feet, many for the first time, in a snow play area set up in a corner of the parking lot.
Snow wasn’t the only attraction in store for the little ones. The event included a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, balloon artists, carnival and train rides and lots of giveaways.
Below are some snapshots from Jingle Bell Jump 2016.
