When Santa arrives, you know Christmas is near. 

Old St. Nick flew into Bend by helicopter Friday to the Les Schwab Amphitheater. Santa spent several minutes visiting with children and families giving high-fives, hugs and taking pictures before walking over to SantaLand in the Old Mill District. 

Dates and times for taking photos with Santa and handing him Christmas lists can be found at www.oldmill.com
