With Christmas on the horizon, we have to ask — who do you think is the real Santa? There are plenty of contenders around town, but many swear the authentic Kris Kringle can only be found at The Plaza at Preston Center.

Decide for yourself December 5, 12 and 19. The man in the red suit will stop by the shopping village between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. And he’ll have two reindeer in tow — Comet and Cupid. There should be plenty of photo opportunities. Luckily, John Hudson will be on hand to capture them all.

In keeping with tradition, guests are asked to donate $5 to the North Texas Food Bank. Last year, the event raised $9,250 for the non-profit. Check out the photo gallery above.
