Santa's Coming... to Midway Mall!


Elyria, Ohio - 1974

Sant'a arrival is heralded at Midway Mall, in this vintage newspaper ad. There will be free Santa rings, polaroids ($1.50 back then), and kiddie rides near Santa's House, in the new-look Midwayland! Plus, see the ever popular "Talking Christmas Tree"--all at Midway Mall, Ohio's showplace enclosed shopping center!

And, since today officially kicks off the Holiday season, this post is also a good time to wish everyone out there a very happy, safe, and above all, yummy Thanksgiving!

Among many other things, I myself, am thankful for all the great people who hang out with me here at Malls of America. You guys make it a fun and worthwhile endeavor, and the blog is definitely better for all your regular visits and comments throughout the year. Thanks everyone! :)

Heh, this is the mall I remember going to once or twice in my lifetime. It's located in Elyria near the highway I believe. It's currently owned by the Westfield hoards.

Of cours, having to noticed this Wiki entry for it, Westfield decided to let that one go last May. Too bad the same can't be said for Franklin Park!

Oh, the "ever popular" talking Xmas tree. I'm a little scared of that!
