Families and especially children can start at the mall’s central atrium. Here, merrymakers will be mesmerized with the sight of Santa and his reindeer’s flying through 75 sleigh bells.
This special Santa installation comes alive every 20 minutes with a synchronized light and music show. What’s more, gingerbread characters, snowmen, marching toy soldiers and ballerinas will roam around to spread cheers.
