New tools make Santa (and shopping) hi-tech!
Santa Claus will arrive on Saturday, November 5. And this year, Santa has a few new tricks up his sleeve! Mall of Acadiana will offer shoppers a Santa "App." The Santa's Fun App will be available for FREE download on the android market and iPhone app store. Have fun and get organized with this techie tool. Children and families can write letters to Santa and even read his responses back with the latest technology to invade Santa's workshop! Plus, get organized with gift lists and track Santa's world-wide journey on Christmas Eve.
Mall of Acadiana will offer shoppers a "FastPass" to visit Santa. The "front of the line" pass is available by visiting the mall website and pre-purchasing your photo package. Shoppers with a "FastPass" will have a separate line and can avoid the wait!
"Visits with Santa are a Christmas tradition for many Lafayette families," said Todd Anderton, Regional Marketing Director for Mall of Acadiana. "Mall of Acadiana is delighted to be a part of creating holiday memories to last a lifetime!"
Visits with Santa are available through Christmas Eve, Mondays - Saturdays from 10 am - 9 pm, Sundays Noon - 6 pm. Visits with Santa are always free and photo packages are available for purchase. For photo package prices and more information, visit the mall website at MallofAcadiana.com.
