The mall will also feature a parade with plenty of mascots, a blood drive and Holiday Mail for Heroes. Visitors can donate blood between noon and 4 p.m. The holiday mail will be sent to the United States Armed Forces, veterans and their families to give them all a "sense of home."

Also happening this weekend, An Affair of the Heart will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. today.

The event will take place at the QuikTrip Center at Expo Square and features one-of-a-kind items such as jewelry, furniture, clothing and gourmet food. Cost of admission is $7.
