Clark County residents can still take pictures with Santa this holiday season, despite the COVID-19 pandemic canceling some more traditional photos with Santa.

Because of the pandemic, the Upper Valley Mall in Springfield will not offer photos with Santa. Instead, residents can now take a free photo at the ‘Santa Selfie Wall.’
