LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Kris Kringle swapped out his traditional red suit for a Kentucky Blue outfit at Fayette Mall in Lexington for the annual Big Blue Santa event Wednesday night.
Parents lined up with their young wildcats for a chance to pose for a picture with Solid Blue Santa.
Children made reindeer treats while they waited in line.
Mrs. Claus was also there and says this year’s turnout was impressive.
“Our crowd has increased dramatically tonight which I think speaks volumes about how much people love their basketball,” she said.
UK Athletics sponsors Big Blue Santa annually.
