West Edmonton Mall offering physically distanced photos with Santa

Nov 26 2020, 9:24 pm

The West Edmonton Mall is still offering photos with Santa this year, but they’ve changed the set up to be pandemic-friendly.

Guests who purchase a Santa photo experience won’t get to sit on his knee this year, but they can enter his chalet and cozy up in his sleigh while posing for a photo with Santa smiling from a safe distance behind them.
