CoolSprings Galleria Kicks off the Holiday Season with Santa’s Arrival

Nashville, TN – Franklin, TN – CoolSprings Galleria is excited to kick off the holiday season with the arrival of Santa Claus on Friday, November 3rd.  

In partnership with the Goddard School for Early Childhood Development, join us for a fun-filled event to welcome Santa Claus to CoolSprings and kick off the holiday season.  Activities will include musical entertainment and interactive games.  Children under 12 who wear their pajamas to the event will receive a FREE mug (while supplies last).  Entertainment will include music, games, sweet treats, story time, and more!  The fun starts at 6 pm in the lower level Center Court near Dillard’s.

Santa Claus is available to hear children’s wishes Monday thru Saturday from 10am to 1pm, 2pm to 5pm, and 6pm to 9pm; and Sundays from noon to 2:30pm and 3pm to 5pm. Visits with Santa are always free, but a variety of photo packages are available for purchase and include a free $20 Promo Card from Shutterfly. New this year, every guest that purchases a photo package will receive one phone call from the big guy himself!

Looking to save a little time during your visit to Santa? Shoppers can purchase 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! Any guest that purchases a photo package through Santa’s Fastpass will receive three phone calls from Santa!

Santa’s visit to CoolSprings Galleria is from November 3rd to December 24th at 6pm when he begins his Christmas trek around the world. Santa is located in Center Court, near Dillard’s.
