Edison Mall Welcomes Holiday Season with Full Sleigh of Winter Activities

Edison 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 Brad Lunn, General Manager at Edison 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.”

Edison Mall festivities include:

The Giving Thanks Tree
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to be thankful for all the amazing gifts we have been blessed with. From November 1st thru November 30th, grab a leaf or two and share what you are thankful for! Let’s fill up our tree with our “Giving Thanks” notes. Located across from Residance.

Kindness Campaign:
The true spirit of the season is about kindness. In celebration of National Kindness Day on Saturday, Nov. 13th, Edison Mall is hosting an interactive art display where guests are invited to ‘Make Kindness Stick’. Visit the art display located near The Curious Cauldron (Entrance B) to participate throughout the entire holiday season.

Santa’s Arrival:
Edison Mall will celebrate Santa’s arrival at the town center with a parade with its own Santa train! On Nov. 27th, Santa will parade throughout Edison Mall with all the children in the community as well as our special guests from Quality Life Center. The event, 3 pm to 5 pm, will also feature family friendly activities and plenty of holiday cheer to go around.

Paws & Claus:
Edison 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 on Monday, Dec. 6th from 6 pm to 8 pm.

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. 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, Dec 12th from 9 am to 10:30 am before the mall is scheduled to open. Guest should use Entrance G by Lens Crafters for admittance. Advance registration is requested, please visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/207522173407

Holiday Storytime:
There is magic in the holiday season—especially when Santa and his fabulous crew come to town. On Saturday, Dec 18th from 10 am to noon, Edison Mall invites families with children ages two to 10 to hear some holiday stories from the Edison Elves, pass on their wish list and get a photo with Santa. Share in some holiday favorites and maybe a few new ones. Please visit shopedisonmall.com for more details and to make reservations.
