Premium Outlets Santa – From December 3rd Santa is travelling around the Premium Outlets for a rare photo opportunity. You will be able to get your photo taken with Santa free of charge, if you have a ticket, but you need to have your own camera with you.
This year they have reduced the number of sessions from four to three. However, they have increased the number of people they let visit each time. Previously it was the first fifty families for each session, but this year it will be 80 people / couples / families for the first two sessions and the first 50 for the 3rd session. Tickets are generally handed out as you line up, before Santa arrives.
Confirmation of this years system should be on the official website soon. (Site was updated and the link is below the December 16th locations).
