THE WOODLANDS, TX – Guests at Market Street will be able to enjoy the magic and wonder of the season as they visit Market Street this season. Market Street is offering contactless photos with Santa Claus and honoring those who deserve it most: healthcare heroes.

Market Street in Lights to honor healthcare workers; Photos and Virtual Visit with Santa Claus

Market Street in Lights
Beginning November 20 and throughout the holiday season, the Christmas tree’s synchronized light and musical display will dazzle as it “performs” daily every hour on the hour, beginning at 5:00 pm through 9:00 pm. This year’s celebration will kick off Friday, November 20 at 5:00 pm, when a taped video honoring our community’s healthcare workers will debut on Market Street’s social media channels. Sponsored by Texas Children’s Hospital – The Woodlands and Sewell Automotive, the tree will continue to light up each evening through December 31, 2020. While the kick-off looks a little different this year in order to comply with current CDC guidelines, guests are invited to enjoy the festive light display daily in Central Park from one of the marked social distance circles. The giant tree is a perfect backdrop for videos and photos!

Contactless Photos with Santa Claus
Who brings lots of Christmas cheer to little girls and boys who have been good all year? Santa Claus is thrilled to be back at Market Street this year in a beautiful Santa’s workshop-themed setting located next to Tory Burch beginning November 21. Santa’s set is specially designed so that he and his young guests remain at a safe distance. No masks are required, but reservations must be made in advance. Sponsored by Texas Children’s Hospital in The Woodlands, Santa Claus images can be purchased on-site with a safe, touchless point-of-sale.

For those families who would prefer a completely contactless experience, Market Street is also offering a magical Virtual Santa Visit via Zoom. Guests are able to reserve the day and time to speak directly with Santa. A commemorative video recording of the Virtual Santa Visit and download of the experience is available for purchase.
