Cottonwood Mall Welcomes Holiday Season with Full Sleigh of Winter Activities

Activities incorporate local organizations and community members to celebrate the holidays together

Albuquerque, NM (Nov. 17, 2021) – Cottonwood Mall is ready to shine for the holiday season. With a full list of holiday activities lined up, friends and families can celebrate the season in their own unique style whether that’s sipping cocoa or parading around with Santa.
“The holidays are an important time for our community to gather, celebrate our loved ones and share gratitude,” said Debra Sherman, General Manager at Cottonwood Mall. “We are proud to offer events and activities that bring people together to ignite the spirit of the season, while also supporting our local small businesses.”

Cottonwood Mall festivities include:

Sensitive Santa®: For children on the autism spectrum and those with related sensory sensitivities, a Santa visit can often mean crowded spaces, long lines and a swirl of competing noise that can create an overstimulating and upsetting environment. Sensitive Santa® provides a magical experience for guests and is hosted before the town center opens in partnership with Autism Society New Mexico. Santa has been especially trained and takes cues from parents and caregivers in order to meet each child’s individual needs. Sensitive Santa will take place on Sunday, December 5 from 9am-10:30am. Advance registration is required.

Paws & Claus: Cottonwood Mall wants to make sure our furry friends get everything on their holiday lists this year. Dog and cat owners are invited to mix and mingle as they get their favorite pet’s photos taken with Santa at Paws & Claus held every Monday in December through Christmas from 6pm-8pm in partnership with Camp Bow Wow. 

Holiday Gift Guides: Need a little help choosing gifts for the people in your life? Cottonwood Mall will be sharing gift guides for Him, Her, Beauty Junkies, even gifts to treat yourself and more. Gather inspiration and shop from the comfort of your own home from Nov. 29 thru Dec. 24 by following Cottonwood Mall on Instagram (@cottonwoodmall).

Kindness Campaign: The true spirit of the season is about kindness. In celebration of National Kindness Day on Saturday, Nov. 13 Cottonwood Mall will host an interactive art display where guests are invited to ‘Make Kindness Stick’. Visit the art display located near the Food Court to participate throughout the entire holiday season.

Bring Home Holiday Magic Sweepstakes: Thanks to Coca-Cola, 20 lucky winners will receive a $500 gift card to shop this holiday. Guests visiting Cottonwood Mall can scan the QR code found at an on-site Coca-Cola vending machine to enter the promotion for a chance to win prizes. The sweepstakes will be active from Nov. 15 thru Dec. 31.

Cottonwood Mall remains focused on providing a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. In addition to our already rigorous cleaning practices, guests will also find hand sanitization stations located throughout the town center. We ask that everyone conduct themselves in a safe and respectful way in accordance with all federal, state, and local regulations, recommendations and health mandates, as well as each individual retailer’s policies.
