SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Santa Claus is coming to Primary Children's Medical Center.

An ice sculpture of Santa and his reindeer will be on display near the hospital's main entrance starting Monday.

Carvers will create the sculpture from 400-pound blocks of ice, using chain saws to hone the holiday image.

The cutting is scheduled to begin Monday morning and should be complete by the afternoon.

Artist Jeff DeJong has made the Santa ice sculpture an annual event for more than 20 years.
