(Westshore Town Centre)

Ho ho ho!

Santa is making a list and checking it twice! And he needs to meet you to know what you’re hoping for this year. 

After temporarily switching to virtual visits with Santa in 2020, Santa is back to in-person visits at Westshore Town Centre – meaning it finally feels like Christmas again! 

Each visit with Santa includes a chance to let him know what you’re wishing for this holiday season and a photo-op. 

At the end of the photo session, guests and their parents can select their favourite photo(s) from the session with the photographer. The photo will be printed on site, ready for you to take home with you as well as emailed so you can have a digital copy of the memory.

Time slots are available for reservation now but are going fast! Currently, reservations can be made up until Sunday, December 12th. Each session is $27.99 plus taxes. 

The next set of photo session dates, which run from December 13th to 24th, will be available to reserve starting Sunday, December 4th. 

In addition to these photo sessions, Westshore Town Centre will also be hosting a variety of other photo sessions to make your holiday dreams come true!

Sensory Sensitive photo sessions with Santa will be available for those who need a quieter, calmer environment to take in all the excitement of the event. These sessions will be held early in the morning before the rush of the mall crowd.

We can’t forget our four-legged best friends! Santa will also be available for pet photo sessions for just three evenings in December.

If you are interested in a festive, Christmas backdrop for some family photos without the man in red, Westshore Town Centre will also be offering family sessions without Santa on December 7th.

For more information on these photo sessions, visit Westshore Town Centre’s Event page

Prior to taking photos, and during your visit with Santa, guests and Santa will remain masked. 

During photos, both visitors and Santa will be able to remove their masks. There will be a plexiglass barrier between guests and Santa, but don’t worry, it will be minimally visible in the photos!

Santa and all his elves will be fully vaccinated. 

Stay up to date with Westshore Town Centre’s holiday events by following their Facebook and Instagram. During the month of December they will be giving away 100 cookie mix jars on their socials.
