Marlborough: Caring Santa™ at Solomon Pond Mall
December 8, 2013| Free
Marlborough – Solomon Pond Mall, 601 Donald Lynch Blvd., Marlborough, will hold a Caring Santa™ event Sunday, Dec. 8, from 8 – 9:30 a.m. Caring Santa is a special event dedicated to families that have children with special needs, providing a subdued environment to visit the Simon? Santa Photo Experience.
Many steps are taken to reduce sensory triggers, creating a more comforting environment for the children's magical visit with Santa. This environment is likely to include (specific elements or aesthetics may vary):
• Turning off in-mall music, stopping escalators located near the Santa set, dimming the lights, and shutting down fountains during the duration of the event.
• Eliminating queue lines through the use of a numbering system whereby guests approach the set when their number is called.
• Special activities and stories geared toward the needs of the child during the “wait” period to help the child understand what activities will occur during the visit.
Participants are encouraged to RSVP for the Caring Santa event at Solomon Pond Mall by going to www.CaringSanta.com. Solomon Pond Mall is located at 601 Donald Lynch Blvd. in Marlborough.
