Book your appointment to take a sensory-friendly photo with Santa in The Holly Jolly Tree Farm at Southcentre Mall. Visiting Santa is part of many families’ holiday traditions, but it can be difficult for children with sensory processing difficulties, due to bright lights, noise, and crowds. Southcentre's sensory-friendly photos with Santa will be a time for kids to see Santa Claus with the usual holiday music and lights turned off to provide a quiet, calm, and supportive environment. There will be no direct contact with Santa and appointments are required. The Holly Jolly Tree Farm is a new Santa experience and there are additional COVID-19 restrictions in place. Visit the website for full details.
