Get in the Holiday Spirit at Aventura Mall’s Holiday Fest

What: Aventura Mall, Miami’s premier fashion destination, is amazing visitors of all ages with Holiday Fest, a fun and interactive morning to welcome Santa back to the mall for the 2017 holiday season. The mall will begin a Toy Drive benefiting the Salvation Army on the same day and is encouraging visitors to donate unwrapped toys for less fortunate families in Miami Dade


Families are invited to participate in various holiday activities including arts and crafts, and face painting. Guests will also enjoy a performance from the Girl Choir of South Florida and M.I.A. Dance Factory. Santa will arrive at the mall at 11 a.m. and make his way to Santa’s Workshop to greet and take photos with children. Aventura Mall’s magnificent Santa’s Workshop, located on the lower level near Apple,  is highlighted by a mountain of glistening, mirrored gift boxes stacked 60 feet high, adorned with cuddly 10-foot teddy bears, classic English-style rocking horses, 12-foot tall toy soldiers, and 13-foot candy canes


In true holiday spirit, Aventura Mall will be hosting a Toy Drive benefiting the Salvation Army, which will also begin on November 18. Visitors attending Holiday Fest are encouraged to bring new unwrapped toys such as educational games, Legos, dolls, ride-on toys, soccer balls, footballs, basketballs, musical toys, and tricycles.
