SANTA CLAUS RETURNS TO HOLYOKE MALL WITH A SAFE AND MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE FOR GUESTS
Santa Claus IS coming to town, arriving at Holyoke Mall on November 27th!
Holyoke, MA-He’s making a list and covering his face, and in addition, this year, he’s taking steps to keep everyone safe… Santa Claus IS coming to town! Holyoke Mall has taken the liberty to alter the lyrics of the famous Christmas jingle to announce Santa’s return in 2020. In coordination with Cherry Hill Programs, the industry-leader in experiential holiday photography experiences, Santa is scheduled to arrive at Holyoke Mall on Black Friday, November 27th, 2020.
There will be plenty of fun and magic, as well as a focus on the health and well-being of everyone. 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 www.WhereIsSanta.com or www.cherryhillprograms.com/CovidGuidelines.
Reservations are strongly encouraged with walk-up visits available as space allows throughout the day. Best practices will be followed: maintaining social distance, face masks required for everyone and enhanced cleaning between visits.
“It’s important to keep as much of the beloved holiday tradition alive, now, more than ever,” said Holyoke Mall Director of Marketing, Lisa Wray. “We could all use a dose of Santa’s merry disposition, but we also have to evolve with the times and do it safely. We’ve been strategizing with Cherry Hill to accomplish that goal.”
“Ho, ho, ho! I’m looking forward to seeing all of the good boys and girls in Western Massachusetts this year,” said Claus. “I know this will be a very different season for us all, but it will be a very special one because we all get to keep the magic of the season alive in a way that’s safe and memorable for everyone!”
A full schedule of events regarding Santa’s special appearances will be released in early November.
