Sensitive Santa

This magical event is held in December and is a chance for families to visit Santa after hours in a sensory-friendly environment.

Sensitive Santa at Orchard Park December 2018

Families are invited to come to the mall after hours on a Sunday evening to have a quiet visit with Santa.  They sign up for a designated time so no waiting in lineups or fighting crowds.  Mall staff dim the lights and turn off the music to provide a low stimulation environment.  Santa and the photographer donate their time and every family goes home with a photograph with Santa compliments of organizers and sponsors Tracey and Quincy Vrecko of Quincy Vrecko & Associates (RE/MAX Kelowna).
