Santa Claus Is Coming to Lima Mall

Town center will host safe, socially distanced visits with Santa from Nov. 27 to Dec. 24

LIMA, OHIO (November 17, 2020) – Even in the midst of this uncertain time, nothing can stop the magic of the holidays and one of the season’s most cherished traditions – a visit with Santa Claus. Beginning on Friday, Nov. 27 through Thursday, Dec. 24, families can safely meet and greet Santa at Lima Mall in the North Pole, located in the Old Navy concourse.

The visits with Santa will have a strong focus on health and safety, while allowing for a fun and memorable experience for children and families. Children will have the opportunity to engage in a socially distant conversation and safely pose for a picture with Santa during their visit to Lima Mall’s North Pole. Advance registration is strongly encouraged in order to promote social distancing and contactless payment for photo packages. Walk-up visits will be permitted as space allows.

In addition to in-person Santa visits, Lima Mall will also offer a variety of exciting digital experiences with Santa this year. These virtual options will bring the magic of Santa Claus to life remotely while allowing families to enjoy holiday traditions. More information is available at here.

“Visits with Santa are such a nostalgic part of the holiday season for so many children and families in the Lima area,” said Chris Garlock, General Manager at Lima Mall. “We’re thrilled to be able to bring a bit of normalcy and holiday magic to our community, while keeping health and safety as our top priority.”

Santa will be on site to visit with families from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays until Dec. 24. Guests can book their reservation time in advance here.
