Albuquerque, NM (December 7, 2020) – Even in the midst of this uncertain time, nothing can stop the magic of the holidays and one of the season’s most cherished traditions – a visit with Santa Claus. Beginning on Friday, Dec. 4 through Thursday, Dec. 24, families can safely meet and greet Santa at Cottonwood Mall on the lower level in center court.
The visits with Santa will have a strong focus on health and safety, while allowing for a fun and memorable experience for children and families. Children will have the opportunity to engage in a socially distant conversation and safely pose for a picture with Santa during their visit to Cottonwood Mall’s North Pole. Advance registration is strongly encouraged in order to promote social distancing and contactless payment for photo packages. Walk-up visits will be permitted as space allows.
In addition to in-person Santa visits, Cottonwood Mall will also offer a variety of exciting digital experiences with Santa this year. These virtual options will bring the magic of Santa Claus to life remotely while allowing families to enjoy holiday traditions. More information is available at https://bit.ly/2L4YiyE.

Santa will be on site to visit with families from 11AM – 8PM Monday thru Saturday and Sundays from 11AM – 7PM until Dec. 24. Guests can book their reservation time in advance at https://bit.ly/3mFOYPB.

Alcohol-based hand sanitizer dispensers are located in highly trafficked areas and walkways for public use. Specifically, social distancing guidelines will be in place around the Santa set, as well as in all queue lines.
