Visits with Santa are back for 2021. One of my favourite Christmas activities is to look at all the photos with Santa I’ve had taken over the years. My mom displays them with pride: the one with me screaming my head off at 10 months of age all the way through to the one my husband and I took in our first year of marriage. Both my boys love sitting on Santa’s knee, telling him their big Christmas wish, and smiling at a camera to make a lasting memory.

Now sitting on Santa’s knee continues to be a bit different thanks to COVID. But the organizers of Santa’s social calendar have done a terrific job of devising creative ways kids can interact with the jolly ol’ elf.

If we’ve missed a Santa location, please send us an email and we will update our information. Please make sure you visit the mall’s website for additional information; the hours for most locations change throughout November & December. Also, for 2021 almost all of the visits with Santa require pre-registration to reserve your spot.
