Where to Get Santa Claus Pictures on the Northshore

 This post is updated for 2020.

If you’re not careful it will be Christmas Eve when you realize that you’ve forgotten to take care of this holiday tradition. Your best bet is to plan ahead and figure out exactly where and when you plan to get that coveted photo of your kids with Kris Kringle. To help you do this, we’ve provided a list here of every opportunity we know of to get those pictures taken with Santa Claus. That means we’ve both paid opportunities and opportunities to get a free picture with Santa Claus. Just remember, if it’s free it usually means you have to bring your own camera, so come prepared! If you’re looking for something else holiday related–maybe an activities list, or place to buy a Christmas tree, please visit our complete holiday guide which covers everything you need to know to celebrate Christmas on the Northshore.

    Do you know where in The Hammond Square Mall Santa will be?

    • I don’t know, but I have a message sent to them to try to find out.

      • Katy, were you able to find out exactly where the Santa pictures are being taken in the Northshore Square Mall?? We’re very last minute this year with our Santa pictures, and we’d like to take the kids there on Christmas Eve to take a picture. Thanks in advance!
