Santa, Free Samples, and More! Walmart Hosts Largest In-store Event Ever!

I was so bummed when we missed giving my kids the opportunity to meet Santa in our local community last weekend. Kids weren't feeling well, and it was really, really cold.

I am so happy to have a 2nd chance at the Walmart in Omaha, NE tomorrow, as 3 stores in my area are hosting one of their largest holiday events, and they will feature Santa!  They are:

  • 16960 W MAPLE RD 
  • 12850 L ST 
  • 18201 WRIGHT ST
Parents can get a free 5x7 photo with their kids that feature either Santa or a Christmas theme, and it will come in a keepsake photo holder.  Plus, the kids will get a special treat from Santa, himself!  You can take advantage of this fun event tomorrow, December 6th from 10am - 2pm.

In addition, there will be sampling of dishes you can create for your upcoming holiday get-togethers, along with recipe demos from 11:30 - 4pm.  If you're looking to see just what's up with all the hot toys, you can also stick around for the "try before you buy" hands-on event for tablets, smartphones, video games, and more -- taking place from noon to 4pm!

We will be there, taking pictures and sharing on social media.  Follow us on Twitter at @LKnerl or Instagram to join in the social fun!

Want to participate, but don't live in the Omaha area? You're in luck!  The following markets will also be hosting all 3 live events (call your store to verify):

Dallas/Ft. Worth · Houston · San Antonio · Indianapolis · Orlando · Knoxville · Omaha · Fayetteville, NC · Columbus · Cincinnati · Austin · Sioux City
And some extra stores will just be doing the food portion. Click to see the food samplings.
