Christmas comes to Wetaskiwin Mall, with festive family fun all through December.

12 days of Christmas? This mall has over 20!

Hark! Wetaskiwin angels sing about all the happy holiday events happening at the mall

Wetaskiwin Mall is the place to be this December!

They’ve hauled out the holly and hung the mistletoe. The carols are cued up and even Santa himself has RSVP’d.

Brandy Pfeil, Marketing Coordinator for the Mall, is excited to open up the space to the community.

“The mall hosts a nice collection of national retailers as well as local small businesses and non-profits. We’re a wonderful mix of everything-in-one.”

Santa’s Coming! Santa’s Coming!

Santa’s paying a visit to the Mall starting Dec. 4; and will be darting down from his workshop every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday in December to update his Christmas lists and take photos with everyone on his Nice List.

Every family gets one free photo, and Santa’s elves will have a copy ready for you when you hop off Santa’s knee.

“Last year I think we did more photos with adults than kids, which is fantastic,” says Pfeil.

Tell Santa your Christmas wish on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Fridays from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Tender Hearts Toy Drive

There’s still time to drop off donations for the annual Toy Drive, up until Dec. 13.

“Toys go to families who otherwise wouldn’t be able to give their kids presents on Christmas,” says Pfeil.

The Boys & Girls Club and other community support organizations will distribute the donations to make sure there’s something special under every tree in Wetaskiwin.

Last Minute Shoppers Rejoice!

From Dec. 16 – 23, the Wetaskiwin Mall will be open from 9:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.

“A fair number of people in Wetaskiwin seem to embrace the last-minute shopping philosophy, so we’re happy to cater to them,” says Pfeil.

There’s plenty of time and space for everyone to finish their Christmas shopping.

“Decembers around here are festive and full of fun for the whole community.”

Season of Giving

“There are four weeks of giveaways here at the mall starting December 2nd!” says Pfeil.

Every time you make a purchase at a business in the Mall you’ll get a slip to enter the draw. With prizes awarded every Monday in December, there are plenty of chances to win!

Descriptions of the prizes will be posted one week in advance of the draw date. Each prize will be worth upwards of $500, supplied by all the beloved businesses in the mall.
