2018 holiday season.
Kicking off the holiday season on Friday, November 9 in partnership with HGTV, Santa HQ invites
families to experience the wonder of Santa's workshop in the digital and social media age through a truly
innovative and interactive visit with Santa. Digital tools are utilized to elevate the shopper's visit with
Santa, offering an enhanced social media experience through augmented reality. New this year, visitors

outfits, receiving customized "Magic Mirror" collector cards and more. Additionally, special live visits from
Santa HQ's elves, Strawberry and Jack, will take place every Saturday through Dec. 8 from 1 to 4 p.m.
During their visit to Santa HQ, guests can take advantage of magical augmented reality using the Elf-Ray
Vision app or provided tablet, allowing them to experience Santa's Workshop and Observatory like never
before. In addition, visitors can take an Elfie Selfie to star in their own holiday video, see where they
stand on the Naughty or Nice O'Meter and enjoy a stunning holiday light show featuring over 10,000
individual bulbs dancing to "Carol of the Bells."
Santa HQ activities are free with the option to purchase a variety of photo packages and guests can
