Palisades Center in West Nyack, NY has a festive and fun Santa set for the holidays

Palisades Center is excited to welcome Santa along with a new place for him to call home! Santa will be available in the H&M court for greetings and pictures. This year, a “tree” of presents stands 30 feet tall behind Santa’s big red chair. The presents are numbered “1 to 12” and will light up to count down the 12 days before Christmas.

Children will approach the set through the entrance arches where Santa will be waiting to meet with them and get pictures taken. After the photo op, children are directed to the next area of the set where Christmas music is playing and an assortment of activities will be available! Parents can purchase their Christmas photos while the kids hang out in the play room. Letters to Santa can be written and inserted into Santa’s special mailbox located right here at Palisades Center!

Santa will be taking them back to the North Pole and writing everyone a special letter in return which an adult can access from their computer by going to and following the directions. Santa’s hours this year will be Monday – Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. A variety of packages are available for purchase, more information is available at the set.

Those looking to take pictures of Santa with their pet can come every Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. starting November 27 until December 18. Make sure this year’s visit to Santa is special by coming to Palisades Center!
