As excitement builds for the festive season, Festival Plaza Mall is also gearing up for a cheerful holiday like no other. You better watch out; you better not cry—Santa Claus is coming to town. From December 17 to 18 and 24 to 25, guests can watch as Santa shakes his belly like a bowl full of jelly in a visit to Santa's Grotto. Pop in for a meet and greet with Santa or join the carollers for a singalong from December 24 to 25 at Festival Plaza. Watch out for surprises as Santa and his elf will also be doing some roaming about and some lucky guests would be in for a treat!
