Some changes are coming to Downtown San Luis Obispo's Mission Plaza this holiday season.

While Santa’s House is once again being flown in from the North Pole, it won’t be occupied by him this year.

Instead, Downtown SLO says a life-size photo of Santa will be placed outside his house and photo opportunities available.

A mailbox will also be there for children to drop off their letters to him and receive a letter back.

Instead of a carousel, a 20-foot rainbow light tunnel will illuminate Mission Plaza.

Five interactive-themed “Memory Moment Pods” will also be placed around Mission Plaza where people can take selfies.

The holiday season kicks off in Mission Plaza on Nov. 28.
