LIVINGSTON, NJ - Children can be photographed with Santa now through December 24 in Center Court at the Livingston Mall. There will also be a Pet Photo Night on December 8, from 8 pm to 10 pm in Center Court.
HP is the presenting sponsor for the 2013 Simon Santa Photo Experience and will demonstrate its next generation PCs in select malls this holiday season. ABC Family, Universal and Gymboree are associate sponsors this year.
Visitors to the Simon Santa Photo Experience will receive a 25 Days of Christmas programming guide complements of ABC Family, and can pose for photos with the Despicable Me 2 minions standee, while watching highlights from the movie, courtesy of Universal Studios Home Entertainment, which is set to release the movie for home viewing in December.
“One of the great traditions of holiday shopping at Livingston Mall is the annual family visit to the Simon Santa Photo Experience,” said Elizabeth DiDuca, area director of marketing and business development for Livingston Mall. “I know Santa can’t wait to greet children bringing him their holiday wishes.”
In addition, Pet Photo Night will be back again. For the convenience of allergic patrons, it is hosted after regular mall closing and the set gets an extensive cleaning following the event to remove dander, etc.
Also, the Noerr Programs, operators of the Santa Photo Experience at the Livingston Mall, is sharing the heart of Santa online this holiday season, through the “BeMerrySanta®” program where families can keep up with Santa’s daily musings on his Facebook page at facebook.com/BeMerrySanta or Twitter @BeMerrySanta. Parents can also input their child’s good deed into Santa’s Magical Badge Generator and then print out their child’s customized badge, or show it to Santa on a smartphone or tablet during their visit.
Guests to every Noerr set will have the opportunity to share Santa’s spirit of generosity by making a donation via The Noerr Programs to U.S. rural children in need through Save the Children, a 75-year-old non-profit organization. To create even more magic for donors, The Noerr Programs will offer a chance for a lucky family of four to win a trip to Orlando, Florida.
