MONETA, Va. (WDBJ) - Santa Claus came all the way from the North Pole to Smith Mountain Lake Saturday morning.

He arrived on a boat at Smith Mountain Lake Coffee House.

Hundreds of kids’ faces lit up as they told Santa whether they had been naughty or nice.

The children also received free cookies and cup sof hot chocolate from Santa Claus.

It’s an event families in Moneta look forward to every year.

“It’s very good. We do a thing called a gift of togetherness every year. We try to do something fun every week leading up to Christmas and so this is our event for the week,” said Rebecca Nininger.

The event was free to the public.
