Everything You Need to Know About the Holidays at West Acres
From visits with Santa and holiday performances & events, to gift inspiration for everyone on your list, here’s everything you need to know about what’s happening at West Acres this holiday season!
It is truly our favorite time of year – the mall is decked out in holiday decor, music by local performance groups fills the halls, and so many new memories are made with our staff and visitors. With all of the holiday hustle and bustle, and so many ways to celebrate the season, we’ve broken down everything that’s happening at the mall during the holidays, so you don’t miss out on a thing!
Santa is here!
Old Saint Nick will make his way from the North Pole to visit and take pictures with our shoppers all season long, starting on November 29th. Take a walk through Santa’s Whimsical Wonderland, interact with all of the fun elements, and don’t forget to get your photo taken with Santa himself! He will be here during all mall hours through Christmas Eve. To see specific Santa hours, click here.
Local school and other musical and dance groups will be making cheer for all to hear this holiday season! Groups will perform on weekdays in the fountain court. To see a full list of holiday performances, click here. (Note: times and performance groups may change. Please check back for updates.)
Holiday Gift Wrapping
No need to wrap all those gifts yourself! The Kiwanis and Optimists clubs will be doing their annual gift wrap fundraiser, kicking off December 6th across from Guest Services and running through Christmas Eve. If you’re in need of gift wrapping beforehand, please visit Guest Services. No matter what, we always have your wrapping needs covered.

Giving Tree of Hope
The First Link Giving Tree of Hope is located across from Bath and Body Works starting December 1st. The tree and donation tables will be staffed through December 15th, collecting toys and gifts for children and adults with special needs that would otherwise not receive gifts this holiday season.
Share the Joy
Our Share the Joy campaign is back for the holiday season! In the weeks leading up to Christmas, West Acres staff will be surprising random shoppers throughout the mall! It is our mission to spread a little extra joy this season, and we encourage our shoppers to do the same. A small act of kindness can go a long way – paying for someone’s coffee, helping someone to their car, or sharing the joy through a simple smile – it all makes a big difference!
