Here comes Signing Santa Claus - Save the Date!


BARTON CREEK SQUARE – December 8, 2014Austin, Texas – December 8, 2014  Santa will arrive at Barton Creek Square Mall, ready to check wish lists from deaf and hard of hearing students from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. 

That’s right. Santa knows many languages, including American Sign Language (ASL). 

Signing Santa Claus - sponsored annually thanks to Barton Creek Square Mall - gives area children who use ASL to communicate, the opportunity to relay their holiday wishes directly to Santa, and on to the North Pole. 

Volunteers and students from the Austin Optimists Clubs and Texas School for the Deaf (TSD) will provide each child with a free photo on Santa’s lap and a small treat from his workshop, while TSD students will perform to holiday music in American Sign Language.

WHAT: Free photos by Michael Barker Photography with Signing Santa Claus for children who are deaf and hard of hearing, along with holiday music by students from Texas  School for the Deaf

WHEN: Monday, December 8  – 6:00 – 8:30 PM
