Meet Santa at the Patrick Henry Mall
A little south of the North Pole, in Newport News Santa and his helpers are waiting for your family to visit his workshop! Come and meet Santa at the Patrick Henry Mall.
Where to Find Santa
Santa’s Workshop is located in the center of the mall near Dick’s Sporting Goods. He is next to the GIANT Christmas Tree, so you can’t miss him.
Santa will be at the Patrick Henry Mall till Christmas Eve. You can come visit him Monday – Saturday 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Visiting the North Pole
We all know that visiting Santa is a BIG deal for every family, so Hampton Roads Moms put together some tips for your trip to meet Santa at the Patrick Henry Mall.
As you know Santa is a celebrity, and there will sometimes be a small wait. But Santa and his helpers at the Patrick Henry Mall have already solved your fears of waiting in lines with kids.
This year, there is interactive video games and activities for the children.
The kids loved being able to build a train. In fact they loved it so much that we had to remind them that Santa was waiting to meet them.
As a Mom with restless kids, it was a relief that Patrick Henry Mall provided activities for the kids so I wouldn’t have to dig through my purse to find something to entertain them.
After building your train, your family gets to walk through the Christmas tree and a few steps closer to the North Pole.
While walking through the Christmas tree you enter a winter wonderland.
Snow falls from the the tree and your kids will love to play in the snow. My kids could have played in the snow forever! The children thought that it was absolutely magical and enjoyed the snow.
After making it through the winter wonderland and interactive area, it is time to FINALLY meet Santa.
Santa has a wonderful big chair to fit the whole family for a photo, so be sure to dress nice to be in a photo with your kids (or even just you with Santa)!
Santa was wonderful and we got great shots of the kids. They had so much fun meeting Santa and we can’t wait to take them back again!
