For the 2nd year, Great Northern Mall will host "Soothing Santa," an opportunity for children with Autism and other special needs (and siblings) to visit with Santa in a more soothing and sensory-friendly environment than what is typically associated with a shopping mall environment during the Holiday Season.
Session 1: Sunday, December 7, 8am-10am
Session 2: Sunday, December 7, 7pm-9pm
Each session is limited to 40 families and families must register in advance. Make your reservation by calling the mall management office at 440-734-6304 during business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5pm).
During "Soothing Santa," families will enjoy a quiet visit with Santa supported by dimmed lighting, no overhead mall radio or audible music from nearby stores, no long lines, and lower shopper traffic. Children will be entertained with special sensory-friendly activities nearby while they wait. The location is Santa's Sleigh in Center Court (near JCPenney).
Regular packages & pricing from Cherry Hill Photo apply, ranging from $22-$47, and including a $10-$20 Shutterfly Gift Card as your FREE gift with purchase.
