It's the last weekend before Christmas.

You know what that means: Time to visit Santa if you haven't already.

Aside from the Santa station at Briarwood Mall, there's plenty of opportunity to visit Santa this weekend in Ann Arbor- and they're all free.

Santa will be at Kerrytown shops from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Children are welcome to tell Santa what they want for Christmas and parents are encouraged to bring they're own cameras.

Santa also will be at the Dixboro General Store from noon until 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Parents are able to bring their own camera.

Also, Santa will be at Conor O'Neills Traditional Irish Pub and Restaurant from 4:30 until 6 p.m. Sunday. Children who go can take a picture with Santa and get a free gift.
