Santa Claus (via Macy's)Arlington hasn’t seen any snow — yet — but that won’t stop a winter celebration from coming to the Columbia Pike this weekend.

The second annual Winter Wonderland at Penrose Square is scheduled for this Saturday from 2-6 p.m. at 2501 9th Road S. It will be held in the breezeway between the apartment building’s leasing office and the Giant store.

The event is free and open to the public. Community members are invited to celebrate the season with holiday food and activities.

Santa and Mrs. Claus will join the celebration from 2-5 p.m. for visits and pictures. There will also be carolers and craft stations set up during this time.

A sleigh full of local businesses will be at the event handing out holiday beverages and goodie bags. Some of the participating area retailers include Starbucks, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt, Mancini de Paris and Jimmy Potter’s Studio.

Scheduled to make an appearance around 4 p.m.: “Arlington’s own Himalayan Yeti,” provided by the Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization.

The wonderland will wind down after a tree-lighting ceremony and sing-along, which starts at 5:30 p.m.
