You can fly to the North Pole at Fashion Show mall?
The holidays are here and in the PR world that means events are everywhere. This is great for me because I absolutely love events. I love working them and, of course, attending them. Just last week I had the opportunity to help at an event called Adventure to Santa at Fashion Show and it was amazing.
Adventure to Santa is a new holiday experience that launched nationwide by DreamWorks Animation. Our very own Fashion Show mall is one of eight lucky malls in the country to have the experience available to its visitors. Before Adventure to Santa was going to be available to the public, Fashion Show held a VIP invite only event for a lucky few to get a sneak peek at what this new experience was all about.
The VIP event was absolutely delightful. The Great Hall at Fashion Show was decorated with ornaments hanging from the ceiling, there were performers providing aerial entertainment, there was hot apple cider, adorable decorated cookies, and you could take your picture with a few characters from the movie Shrek!
Once the event got underway, DreamWorks and Fashion Show did the revealing of what I will call, the “Santa Experience All Children Must Have.” The large red curtains opened to reveal a magical house that looked like an animated version of a holiday house you would find in a children’s book. The exterior had large and bright animated screens that made it look like it was snowing. It was incredible. I had never seen anything like it! The adventure waiting for me inside the house was going to be even more remarkable.
After assisting with the event, I was given the opportunity to go on this “Adventure to Santa”. Now, I won’t divulge all of the adventure to you, but I will tell you it is a must do for the holiday season. A must do if you have children, a must do with friends – even a must do for adults. DreamWorks Animation really takes you on a personalized journey to see Santa Claus. My favorite part of the adventure was the sleigh ride. You really feel like you are flying to the North Pole!
If you told me in college that one day I would be helping at a work event where I took a sleigh ride adventure to meet Santa, I would have never believed you. But that is why events are so much fun. They always offer you something, or, can give you opportunities like this one. I was so in love with “Adventure to Santa” that I called my parents, told them all about it and said it was something I believed every child had to experience. DreamWorks Animation has developed meeting Santa into something phenomenal. A truly unforgettable free experience that I wish was around when I was a kid. One that, even as an adult, I enjoyed and would do again.
So, if you have the chance, go to Fashion Show mall and take your very own Adventure to Santa. Hopefully you enjoy it just as much, or even more than I did!
