PORTLAND -- Santa is back On the Bricks meeting with kids and families inside his house at the Pioneer Courthouse Square.

This year, Saint Nick has a new way to manage long lines and even longer waits. Visitors can enter the virtual line via the web, text, phone or in person at Santa s House.

Those looking to sit on Santa s lap will receive an approximate wait time, freeing them up to eat, shop, or just hang out while awaiting a turn to spill their Christmas wish list.

Santa will be at Pioneer Courthouse Square from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. through Dec. 23. He will be there on Christmas Eve until 5 p.m.
