Village of Rochester Hills Santa Claus 2020
PER THE VILLAGE OF ROCHESTER HILLS –
“The holiday season would not be complete without a visit with Santa Claus himself. Beginning Friday, November 20th, Santa will be in-person at The Village of Rochester Hills taking free photos in an open-air Woodland Lodge-inspired setting. Families are encouraged to bring their own camera to capture their visit, as a photographer will not be provided. Guests will be socially distanced as they speak with Santa and able to capture a photo with him in a fresh open-air setting. Guests over two-years-old will be required to wear a mask but are able to remove it to smile in their photo. In an effort to minimize crowds while providing a convenient experience for all, visits will be scheduled in advance through an online reservation system. Guests will receive an email confirmation along with text message alerts from Santa’s helpers that will allow them to get up-to-the minute updates on their appointments. Without having to wait in a crowded line, guests will be able to shop and enjoy The Village prior to their scheduled appointments, allowing open space surrounding Santa and his helpers. One-way traffic flow will be set up for all arrivals and departures of guests during their visit. The Santa reservation system will open up for appointments on Friday, November 5th and can be scheduled by visiting The Village of Rochester Hills website at www.thevorh.com.
The Santa reservation process is free. Guests will be able to visit TheVORH.com and select their date, time slot and number of guests in their party, along with their cell phone number. Due to social distancing measures, groups are limited to 8 people or fewer. Guest parties will have 5 minutes allotted to meet with Santa and take photos. Advance reservations are encouraged as visits will be scheduled through the reservation system. Walk-up visits may be available if the schedule permits, but are not guaranteed. To further provide convenient scheduling, every Monday morning at 7:00am, additional reservation slots may be added for that coming week, which allows for any last-minute scheduling needs for families during the busy holiday season. Confirmed guests are asked to arrive at The Village at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment.”
