Starting Friday at 1pm, the big man himself -- Santa! -- stops by Bank of America Winter Village for photo opportunities and caroling. For the first 45 minutes of the event, the New York Holiday Choristers bring their four-part harmonies to different areas of the park for the Santa Parade. Santa will take his position at Santa's Corner -- featuring a beautifully painted, custom throne -- at 1:45pm for photos. There are two ways to snap a photo. Bring your own camera or cell phone, and snap your own pic; or we'll take a photo on our camera and upload it to our Flickr page ( so you can download it later at home. To make the first day of the event extra special, and to put some gas in your holiday shopping tank, there will be a raffle of hundred-dollar gift certificates to four Holiday Shops: Cliff Belts, kiosk J12; Lucy & Leo, kiosk J7; Kizmet Yogawear, kiosk J5; and Mistura Timepieces, kiosk L6. Place your raffle ticket in the bucket corresponding to the item you'd like to win. Drawing is at 3:30pm; must be present to win. Limit one entry per person.
