“One of the great traditions of holiday shopping at Lenox Square, Mall of Georgia, North Georgia Premium Outlets and Town Center at Cobb are the annual family visits to the Simon Santa Photo Experience,” said Teresa Holloway, director of marketing and business development at Mall of Georgia on behalf of the four participating Atlanta-area Simon centers. “I know Santa can’t wait to greet children bringing him their holiday wishes.”

These four Atlanta-area centers also provide special needs children and their families an opportunity to enjoy this time-honored holiday tradition through a sensory-friendly Caring Santa event in partnership with Autism Speaks. Caring Santa events have expanded from seven Simon malls in 2011 to 111 Simon malls today, reflecting the positive impact of this special program. Guests can register in advance at simon.com/caringsanta.

The popular Pet Photo Night returns to the Simon Santa Photo Experience this year. Many pet owners view their pet as an integral member of the family and are just as committed in caring for their pets as their “human” family members. The set gets an extensive cleaning following the event to remove any potential risk to allergy sufferers. 

For local pet owners, the popular Pet Photo Night with Santa will occur on the following dates:

  • Lenox Square: Sunday, November 11 and Sunday, December 9 from 7:30-9:30 p.m.
  • Mall of Georgia: Sunday, November 18 from 6-8 p.m.; December 9 from 8-10 p.m.
  • North Georgia Premium Outlets: Sunday, December 9 from 6-8 p.m.
  • Town Center at Cobb: Sunday, November 25 from 6-8 p.m.; Sunday, December 9 from 8-10 p.m.
