This year, on select nights in November and December, Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey fans will have the opportunity to take pictures with Santa wearing a Bolts jersey! As huge Lightning fans, we made the drive out to Citrus Park Town Center to do take advantage of this.
This is basically the regular mall Santa, but on select “Lightning Nights” he will be wearing a Bolts jersey instead of his regular red suit. Thunderbug, the Lighting mascot, as well as the Lightning Girls were also there to greet everyone. They were handing out free goodies, like a super cute Lightning ornament and foam hockey pucks. The Santa’s Holiday Workshop photo set is located right in front of the Macy’s.
The staff was great, and Santa was too! They really took their time with every family, and I was very happy that neither my kid nor his baby cousin cried during their meeting with Santa!
If you are wondering about prices, photo packages range from $24.99 to $49.99. The Lightning Santa added a very unique touch to our holiday photos this year, and it was totally worth it. My son even brought along his favorite Steven Stamkos doll for the picture!
