Hopefully, the elves will come too. Santa's coming to the Ocean County Mall this week.

I know I get excited when I see Santa sitting in the "big" red velvet chair, center court of the Ocean County Mall. The mall will be decorated for his arrival.

Santa comes to the Ocean County Mall this Friday, November 12th, 2021. The Ocean County Mall reminds you, please make a reservation with your time with Santa. Walk-ups will be available but they strongly ask for us to make a reservation. Because of Covid, the lines for Santa, that used to wrap around the mall will not be happening again this year. CLICK HERE to reserve your spot with Santa.

When you head to the website of the mall, you'll notice the different dates to meet with Santa and there are different time slots, giving you plenty of time to visit Santa and get your Christmas picture.

Once again, hours are set aside for your pets and children with special needs. Caring Santa will be Sunday, December 5th, 2021, and Photos with your pets are Sunday, November 28th, 2021, according to patch.com.

When Santa arrives this Friday, November 12th, 2021, he'll be here all the way up to Christmas. There are certain dates on the Ocean County Mall's calendar where reservations can be made to visit with Santa starting at 10 am on some days and some days starting a little later in the day. There are plenty of dates and times for everyone to meet with Santa this year in Toms River. CLICK HERE to reserve your spot Santa.
