Eager children and their families can experience the joy and magic of the holiday season with a visit to the Santa Photo Experience at Coral Square Mall. Children can visit and be photographed with Santa in the new Center Court winter wonderland until Saturday, December 24.
The brand new Santa set will serve as St. Nick’s home away from home while he spends time in sunny South Florida. The joyfully decorated set includes a world of red, green and gold décor, snow, a front door and beautifully decorated Christmas trees to herald the holiday season.
“One of the great traditions of holiday shopping at Coral Square Mall is the annual family visit to the Simon Santa Photo Experience,” said Xiomara Fraga, director of mall marketing at Coral Square Mall. “I know Santa can’t wait to greet children bringing him their holiday wishes.”
The Santa Photo Experience is again sponsored by The Gymboree Corporation. The Gymboree Corporation is a specialty retailer operating stores selling high-quality apparel and accessories for children under the Gymboree, Gymboree Outlet, Janie and Jack, and Crazy 8 brands.
This holiday season, Simon invites everyone to celebrate “The Joy of Giving.” Giving is contagious and this season Simon invites everyone to pass that spirit on and ‘Give Love,’ ‘Give Sparkle,’ ‘Give Warmth,’ and ‘Give Fun.’ Join Simon to experience the season’s good cheer with the best of holiday shopping and entertainment.
Guests to every Photo Experience will have another opportunity to share Santa’s heart by making a donation via The Noerr Programs to Save the Children. For nearly 100 years, this non-profit has given underserved children in the U.S. a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. Since this program began five years ago, Noerr has collected over $1,000,000 largely due to the generosity of Simon shoppers.
