Santa is out and about in full swing right now! There are many opportunities and places to take your kids to visit with him! Here are a few places we found around and about Atlanta where you can find Santa. Most local indoor and outdoor malls have visiting hours with Santa as well!
Free Photos with Santa at the Alpharetta Welcome Center December 2
Get your holiday photo taken for free at the Alpharetta Welcome Center, 178 South Main Street, Suite 200, on December 2, 2017 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. Stop in for an individual or family photo with Santa and have the photo printed and emailed to you to share with friends and family. This is a free event. No reservations required. No pets please. The photographer will be using a “green screen” so it is recommended that attendees not wear green.
As part of the fun and festivities of the day, enjoy fun creations from a balloon artist on the plaza, hear holiday carols being sung by area high school students from Cambridge High School chorus and score some fun with corn hole. Be sure to meet and take pictures with Santa’s top helpers as elves work their magic around the plaza interacting with families.

What is RFID technology?
RFID is an enabling technology that helps Avalon seamlessly deliver personalized experiences. Parents can stop by Concierge or go online to register their children and pick up an “I Am Santa’s Gift” tag. The registration form includes questions about the child’s name, age, Christmas wishes and even an option to enter requests such as: clean their room, stop fighting with siblings, etc. When the child approaches with the tag, Santa’s iPad – hidden inside his Naughty or Nice book – populates with the child’s registration form, allowing for a magical conversation between Santa and the child.
Registration for the RFID Experience can be done at Santa’s house or Concierge prior to your appointment.
