Celebrate the season with Santa's Arival and new holiday activities

 This season, Hillcrest Mall introduces new interactive features to their holiday repertoire. From their Centre Court Holiday Lounge, to Hillcrest’s Random Acts of Kindness program, unique ZaZaZoo rides for children and adults – customers of all ages will be able to enjoy the festive season at Hillcrest. Good ol’ Saint Nick arrived at Hillcrest’s North Wing on November 17, bringing back last year’s popular Pet Night and Quiet Time with Santa. Alongside Santa Claus are gift wrapping services with all proceeds going to Epilepsy York Region. Adding to the entertainment mix is Toyota’s experiential pop-up shop, an activation that utilizes VR technology designed to engage with millennials and tech lovers. There’s also a colouring station for kids (or adults!) who like to colour.

 “Hillcrest is focusing on providing new and unique experiential activities for everyone this season,” says Lisa Resnic, marketing director, Hillcrest Mall. “We understand the stress that comes with the holidays, so Hillcrest is offering different activities throughout the mall that will appeal to everyone, regardless of age. From experiential virtual technology to Pet Night, to Quiet Time with Santa and ZaZaZoo rides – everyone will have something to enjoy. A new Holiday Lounge will also appear in Centre Court offering tired shoppers a modern and festive holiday space to rest their feet.”
2016 marks the first holiday season for Hillcrest’s new South Wing featuring Sporting Life and H&M. The centre also welcomes customer favourites such as Sephora, Pandora (opened November 18) and Artizia (opening November 24). Hillcrest will temporarily host Fruit of the Land Culinary Market, a holiday shop specializing in farm-fresh foods and artisanal gift baskets. Seasonal store, Just Cozy, an apparel store offering a selection of warm loungewear on on-trend blanket scarves, will also join Hillcrest for the holiday season.

Experiential Toyota Pop-Up
will kick it up a notch this season with an interactive virtual reality pop-up experience in a retail space located in the North Wing. For a limited time only, guests will be able to test drive a Toyota vehicle using virtual reality driving simulators with photo opportunities to share on social media.

Centre Court Holiday Lounge

Customers can sit back and relax during their holiday shopping trips at the Centre Court Holiday Lounge. The contemporary space is lined with a vignette of festive holiday trees glistening with white light, matching seating, and modern festive decoration. It is a great photo opportunity for families and friends.

Random Acts of Kindness
will be making random acts of kindness one (surprise!) day in December by treating mall guests with special gifts.

ZaZaZoo Rides
is a new innovative concept that allows shoppers to rent and ride large plush animals throughout the shopping centre. Guests off all ages are encouraged to take part.

Harlem world rapper Huddy Combs (no relation to Diddy) died yesterday in a car accident. Apparently he was driving on the George Washington Bridge with a female and his car hit a tractor trailer truck. He was dead at the scene of the accident. Diddy tweeted about it too. From what I heard, Huddy was a best friend of Cam and Mase from back in the days. He was the dude that got Cam’ron to the hospital when he got shot in 2005. He was also a rapper in Mase’s short lived group Harlem World. RIP.

”My man here saved my life,” -Cam'ron said.
