Times Square Center launches its biggest holiday event: The annual winter festival, taking place from December 10th to December 24th from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. The gingerbread village will offer a variety of activities including a tree lighting ceremony, festive carols, a meet and greet with Santa in his Grotto, a Mrs Klaus workshop, as well as roaming entertainers. There will be hands-on activities, arts and crafts, and live performances for guests to enjoy. All around the community destination, garlands and gingerbread ornaments will be hung.

Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony with Christmas Carolers

Times Square Center is welcoming everyone to enjoy the festive spirit with a Christmas tree lighting ceremony to begin the season. The kids will be amazed, and it is a great opportunity to explore the mall and all its activities.

Meet and greet with Santa and his Elves at Santa’s Grotto

Discover Santa's wooden grotto and the gingerbread village with the help of magical elves. This year, have you been naughty or nice? A "Nice" certificate will be given to each child by Santa along with a treat. Visitors of all ages will enjoy a life-size gingerbread house complete with edible decorations, gingerbread entertainers, and elaborate festive trees.

Mrs Claus Workshop Station and Festive Games

You can enjoy four different types of entertainment when you visit Mrs Claus. In the Advent Calendar section, children will open one box with Mrs Claus, and they'll receive a candy pouch as well as a message from Santa. Also available are Snowman and Bucket Bowling games, where kids can unlock doors, using snowballs to bowl down snowmen, winning small and big prizes! Toy Factory Festive Arts & Crafts offers kids the chance to let their creativity run wild. They can create festive toys, ornaments, or holiday cards for family members around the world. Lastly, children will also have the opportunity to practice their cooking skills with Mrs Claus in her special kitchen. In this kitchen, Mrs Claus will teach them how to decorate cookies using frosting, piping bags, and piping tips. Every participant will receive a Cookie Decorating Certificate from Mrs Claus, as well as their edible creations to take home.

Times Square Center will also host a Colourful Jolly Parade throughout the season. Get in the Christmas spirit with performances from the nutcracker, gingerbread girls, bubble dancers and a snowflake ballerina. Also, you can take pictures with them!

There will also be festive markets taking place during the month - the perfect time to find unique and hand-made gifts: ARTE Market and RIPE Market starting on 10th December from 10 am - 6 pm.
