ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Santa Claus is coming to town, but in Albany thousands of them are already here. The Thronateeska Heritage Center opened their Don Fisher Santa Claus Exhibit Saturday. There are over 2,500 Santa figurines from all over the globe, in all shapes and sizes.

12-year-old Brittany Cameron is a volunteer who helped set up the exhibit. She remembers visiting it when she was younger, and is now happy she can help pass her holiday memories on to other children.

"I helped put the Santa's on the displays, and I painted shelves. I think its cool because I used to always go to it, and I like to see the smiles on their faces when they see all of the Santa's," said Cameron.

Three years ago, Fisher loaned the exhibit to the museum who has displayed the collection every holiday season since.
