After a long, cold winter at the North Pole, Santa Claus has returned to the Hillside Centre!

The man in red, along with The North Pole Picture Co. are  excited to provide a safe and memorable experience this holiday season. 

Until December 24th, you can book your Santa and Family photo with Santa at Hillside Centre.

Reservations for this holiday event are required. To reserve your spot, visit the booking website.

This year, Santa will sit behind plexiglass to provide a safe experience for everyone. Enjoy your visit with Santa, and make sure you tell him all about what you’re hoping for this Christmas!

Once your Santa visit is complete, you (the family) will pose for your Family Photo, and Santa will be digitally added to your photo.

Once your photo has been taken, you’ll be able to view it right away. You will be able to see your holiday photo with Santa digitally added in. There are a variety of photo packages available, including snowglobes and holiday ornaments to choose from.

All visitors aged 12+ must be fully vaccinated to visit with Santa. Face masks will be required during the visit but can be removed when seated and invited to do so by the photographer.
