WHAT: Santa Claus is coming to town and his first stop is Mall of America on November 11. Guests are invited to gather for a special evening of music, performances, special giveaways, and Santa himself (and his helpers, of course).
This year, Santa is asking for guests to help collect donations for Toys 4 Tots, and bins will be set up in the Rotunda for any items visitors want to drop off.
The evening will begin with performances by the Choo Choo Bob Band, playing a collection of holiday favorites. Santa will arrive in the Rotunda to celebrate the arrival of the season with guests before making his way to Santaland for the season.
Santaland is located in Sears Court, where Santa will be available for photos until 9 p.m. that evening. For a complete listing of Santa’s schedule this season, click here.
The tradition of Santa’s Arrival officially kicks off the holiday season at Mall of America. For more information on Santa’s Arrival Ceremony, click here.
