NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Visiting Santa will look a little different this year at CoolSprings Galleria as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Kids can still tell Santa their wishes and have their picture taken with him, but visits are going to be contactless. Families will also be about six feet apart from him, masks are required and there will be hand sanitizer available.

CoolSprings Galleria will let you reserve your spot. Still, if you're not comfortable coming in person, there are also online options. Click here for more information.

The typical Black Friday crowds are not expected since fewer people will spend money, experts say.
