Visit with Santa and enjoy holiday shopping and carriage rides  in this beautiful outdoor lifestyle destination
 
Celebrate the holidays with the time-honored tradition of a visit with Santa Claus. November 22 through December 24, Southlake’s premier lifestyle destination, Southlake Town Square, hosts Santa’s Village, where kids of all ages can enjoy a contactless visit with the jolly old elf himself in a magical winter wonderland in the outdoor pavilion of Rustin Park. In addition to a visit with Santa, visitors can also take carriage rides and holiday shopping in Southlake Town Square, a beautifully-decorated outdoor lifestyle destination. 
 
“We’re pleased to offer the picture-perfect place to enjoy the magic of the holiday season in our outdoor setting,” Liz Barth, director of marketing for Southlake Town Square, said. “This year, more than ever, our guests are interested in those time-honored traditions that allow them to enjoy each other and make memories together. Whether it’s visiting Santa, taking a carriage ride, or shopping for all their loved ones, Southlake Town Square is ready to be everyone’s home for the holidays.” 
 
In Santa’s Village at Southlake Town Square, visitors will find Santa in a traditional red suit with a real beard white as snow, sporting his genuinely jolly personality. This holiday tradition is complemented with a modern-day need to promote safety for visitors with regard to COVID-19. Children can enjoy telling Santa all about their wish lists in a socially-distant way that allows for all the fun and photos. Elves in Santa’s Village will conduct cleanings between each visit, and will wear masks and maintain social distancing. Santa’s sleigh and suit will be sanitized between each photo shoot, and clear dividers allow children to visit Santa and his elves safely in this outdoor setting. 
 
To visit with Santa, families need to check in when they arrive in person to the Elf Station next to Santa’s Village to put their names on the reservation list (same-day visit only). If there is a wait time, they can enjoy time in the Square. Guests will receive a text 10 minutes prior to their visit with Santa. 
 
For a list of hours, visit the Santa’s Village page on the Southlake Town Square website (please note: Santa breaks for milk and cookies every day between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m.). 
 
“We are excited to keep the holidays merry and bright,” Barth said. “While this experience may be a little different this year, it will be joyful and memorable!”
