Visit the 12 Days of Santa indoor holiday celebration at The Shops at Roosevelt Collection for free, fun, family-friendly events and activities! Joyous visits with old St. Nick will take place December 1st through December 18th on Thursdays and Fridays from 2 pm-7 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from Noon-7 pm. 12 Days of Santa will feature free photos with your favorite North Pole resident along with a magnificent interactive Santa’s Village display with twinkling lights and holiday scenes.
And on Sunday, December 18th, bring your pet for “Pet Night” from 5 to 7 pm, when Santa will be available for photos with your special pooch or cat!
In addition to complimentary photos with Santa featuring three different holiday poses, and the elaborate Santa Village, families are welcome to engage in a variety of creative, holiday-themed arts and crafts projects including making Christmas tree ornaments, coloring, spin-art, and creating decorative picture frames; all staged by Amdur Productions, producers of this event and various art shows throughout the city.
To help ensure that all children receive gifts this holiday season, The Shops at Roosevelt Collection will be participating in Chicago’s Toys for Tots program. Those wishing to help make the holiday season bright for a child in need can donate unwrapped toys (for newborns through 16 years of age) at Santa’s “satellite North Pole office” located at Roosevelt Collection. Signage throughout the plaza will direct guests to the toy drop-off and all other activities.
