You’ve waited in the lines. You’ve dealt with crying kids and the loud noises of malls and shopping centers. And you’ve paid dearly for the experience, just to get a photograph of your child on Santa’s lap. Well now you can get the end result without all of that hassle. Every Saturday until Christmas, Santa will be making an appearance with his elves at Washington Park to receive wish lists and take photos — sans mall parking.
1-3 p.m. Free. Washington Park, 1231 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, washingtonpark.org.
