Greece, N.Y. (WHAM) - Families had the chance to take pictures with "Soul Santa" at the Mall at Greece Ridge Friday night.

It has become an annual tradition.

"Of course Santa Claus is Santa Claus, so people just love Santa period. But I think just the reaction of seeing an African American Santa Claus, something a little different, something a little fresh," said Chris Cardwell with Good Knews Photography.

"People are definitely going to enjoy, not just the African American Community but everybody," Cardwell added.

Finley, the mascot for the RazorSharks also visited Soul Santa Friday. He helped give away Holiday cheer by giving away free tickets to upcoming RazorSharks games.

Soul Santa will be back at the mall Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Finley will also be back Saturday from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
