Santa Claus and one of his elves made stops at shops along Fifth Avenue on Dec. 17, where he greeted kids who were giddy to hand-deliver their wish lists to the big man in person, according to one mom.
“They were really excited, and wrote him a letter,” said Park Slope mom Karen Block, whose kids Reagen, 3, and Nola, 6, ran into Saint Nick at Du Jour Bakery.
Santa started his journey down Fifth Avenue at Du Jour Bakery and Pinot’s Pallet art workshop, before jumping in his classic ’68 Cutlass Oldsmobile and cruising around the thoroughfare. He then ducked into eatery the Sidecar for pictures with the local youngsters.
Santa has been stopping by the strip every Saturday this month at the invitation of local merchants association the Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District, but Dec. 17 marked his final visit, as he has a lot of work to do on Christmas Eve.
