SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN
Santa Claus will arrive by firetruck at Holyoke Mall on November 26th!
Holyoke, MA– In coordination with Cherry Hill Programs, the industry leader in experiential holiday photography, Santa is scheduled to arrive at Holyoke Mall on Black Friday, November 26th, 2021. Santa will arrive with an escort from the Holyoke Police Department in a Holyoke Fire Department engine at Noon at the Lower Green entrance near Christmas Tree Shops. In time with Santa’s arrival, guests can also enjoy entertainment provided by Dan Kane Singers and Holyoke High School’s Madrigal Choir.
There will be plenty of fun and magic, as well as a focus on the health and well-being of everyone. Families can choose to sit with Santa or have a socially distant visit with Santa. Guests are encouraged to plan their visit with Santa ahead of time and review the safety measures being taken based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention online at safety.createholidaymagic.com.
Reservations are strongly encouraged with walk-up visits available as space allows throughout the day. Reservations can be made at www.WhereIsSanta.com. Best practices will be followed: maintaining social distance and enhanced cleaning between visits.
“It’s important to keep as much of the beloved holiday tradition alive, while also keeping safety at the forefront,” said Holyoke Mall Director of Marketing, Lisa Wray. “We’ve been strategizing with Cherry Hill to accomplish that goal and still offer a magical experience for our guests.”
