The pandemic has forced many holiday events and parties to be canceled this season.

But so many others are reimagining safer ways we can enjoy annual holiday traditions.

Several socially distant and contactless events are kicking off this month. Here’s a list of events that we will be updating:

Safe Santa at Galleria Dallas

The annual tradition of visiting Santa Claus will take a different approach at Galleria Dallas this year, starting Friday, Nov. 20. Santa is taking precautions during the pandemic, too.

He’s wearing a face shield and sitting on an elevated platform with a sheet of plexiglass separating him from the kids. Santa is also wearing a microphone so he can talk to the kids through speakers.

SNOWDAY at Galleria Dallas

Right next to Santa is a contactless event called SNOWDAY. It’s a photo-op experience built by creatives with an eye for holiday cheer.

When you walk in, you get a wristband that’s connected to your smartphone through a QR code scanned upon entry. You then scan that band at each photo station they’ve created. All of the photos are sent to your phone.

Backdrops include “upside-down” rooms, an elf behind plexiglass and a space-themed holiday room.

The event also follows a strict reservation policy. Masks and social distancing is enforced. Click here to make a reservation.
