Forget Rudolph and the sleigh -- Santa has gotten a lot more high tech.Saturday he and Mrs. Claus arrived by helicopter for a free holiday festival at Stratford Crossing in suburban Bloomingdale.

Santa helped launch the mall's fundraiser for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's Toys For Tots program.

The festival included photos with Santa, sleigh rides and storytellers.
