NORFOLK, Va. - Santa returns to MacArthur Center November 21 to visit with children and families in a safe, contactless way.

Guests won't be able to sit on Santa's lap or hug him this year, but kids will be able to chat with him and take photos with him. Masks are required for all guests ages 2 and up, and social distancing and enhanced cleaning between visits will be practiced.

According to MacArthur Center, Santa will be in the mall's Center Court for photos from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. Reservations are strongly encouraged, but walk-up visits will be available as space allows through the day.

If you're not comfortable visiting with Santa in person, the mall is partnering with Cherry Hill Programs to create virtual experiences, including personalized Zoom video calls with Santa.
