Santa’s in Town!

December 12-24, 2020 • Reservations recommended
Queen Ka’ahumanu Center • 275 West Ka’ahumanu Avenue 
Visits with Santa are scheduled to begin December 12th and continue through Christmas Eve. Reservations are strongly encouraged, with walk-up visits available as space allows. Santa’s Village will observe health and safety best practices such as maintaining social distance and enhanced cleaning between visits. Face coverings for you and Santa may be required in accordance with state and local guidelines. It is our top priority to ensure the health and well-being of our guests and Santa, therefore, this year guests will not sit on Santa’s lap during their interaction, but will still have the opportunity to engage in conversation and a magical experience with Santa, while maintaining a physical distance. https://www.facebook.com/events/379231153512959

Holiday Selfies

December 11-24, 2020 
Maui Mall • 70 East Kaahumanu Ave

As an alternative to Photos with Santa, Maui Mall invites patrons to visit the Selfie Stage located in center court where they can snap their own holiday photos in front of a cheerful backdrop. “Maui Mall has always been a popular place for holiday photos with Santa Claus,” said Brian Yano, group manager of Maui Retail, JLL. “We wanted to make sure our community still had an opportunity to take fun holiday photos free of charge. That’s why we created a wonderful holiday display, which is a perfect spot to take a selfie or keiki photo.”
