CASTLE ROCK, Colo. -- Six children from Castle Rock got the surprise of their life Thursday night when a special visitor showed up at their home dressed in red and white and bearing gifts.
Their parents were the winners of The Outlets of Castle Rock's "Take Santa Home for the Holidays" giveaway. This is the second year of the contest, which started on November 19th.
More than 1,000 families entered and the winner was chosen at random on Dec. 10. The prize is a visit from Santa Claus, who arrives with gifts for each child, a new set of pajamas for each, cookies and milk and a storybook to read.
This year, The Outlets invited FOX31 to come along. What we found was a heartwarming story of a family who might not have had a Christmas this year if it wasn't for Santa's visit.
