Free Holiday Photos | December 3 | 10am-2pm

Bring out the family and get FREE photos taken in front of a festive holiday setup! Photos will take place in our Fountain Court with the talented Elisabeth Eden behind the camera!

Photos will be done on a first come, first serve basis and will include a few shots of your group in front of our setup.

The line for photos will open up no earlier than 9:50am – please do not line up prior to this time. If there is still a line towards the end of the event, we will cut off the line at 1:45pm. If you plan to come in the afternoon, please plan to arrive before that time.

Photos will be available 2-3 weeks after the event, with downloading and printing rights. *If you have any questions about the event or your photos, all communication must be handled directly with West Acres, NOT with the photographer. Feel free to send us a message or email!
