Park Slope enlists Santa to encourage consumers to shop small

Posted: Updated:
PARK SLOPE -

Santa Claus himself has joined the movement to "shop small" this holiday season by taking a stroll down Fifth Avenue.

Saint Nick was spreading the message Saturday for the Park Slope Business Improvement District by jumping in a pink 1957 Cadillac convertible.

The location gave the chance to spread holiday cheer in an area with many small businesses along one street.

Today, he met kids at Kos Kaffe to hear what was on their Christmas wish lists.

Santa is due to make more appearances at other businesses in the area throughout the holiday season.
