Santa & Holiday Fun at La Palmera Mall

The holidays are in full swing at La Palmera with guests enjoying shopping and dining in the mall’s festive atmosphere.

Boys and girls will have the chance to visit and have photos taken with Santa Claus in Center Court each and every day through December 24 during mall hours.

Guests will also enjoy Holiday Light Spectacular, brought to you by NEC Retail, the one-of-a-kind, magical 3D light show produced by Los Angeles-based PaintScaping and director Philippe Bergeron, which transforms La Palmera’s Center Court into a holiday wonderland.

The show incorporates 3D projection mapping, merging real and virtual worlds by using walls instead of screens for a canvas, and aligning dazzling light and animation with architectural features.

The popular show will once again feature Santa and his elves, vintage toys magically coming in and out of trap doors, and even virtual snow.

Holiday Light Spectacular will run three times nightly through December 12 at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. Extended holiday hours are in effect at La Palmera through December 31 giving guests plenty of time to shop and enjoy all the holidays have to offer.
