Holiday Events At Carriage Crossing

BY Regan Hewitt

The Shops at Carriage Crossing are innovating their typical holiday events to keep them safe and socially distant for 2020! Starting on November 6th and continuing through January 10th, check out all these holiday events to put a little magic back into the season! 

Wonderland: An Interactive Photo Experience 

From November 6th through January 10th, Wonderland allows you to experience the joys of skating on ice, dancing in snow showers, sending letters to Santa and more! Since the event is hosted by Memphis Escape Rooms, there will also be two mini escape experiences for up to four people at a time. Tickets are $20 per person and children 4 and under are free. Head over to to reserve your private entry time! 

P.S. Pets are welcome!

Be A Santa To A Senior

From November 6th to December 12th, Carriage Crossing will continue their partnership with Home Instead Senior Care and collect gifts for senior citizens who have been isolated in assisted living facilities throughout 2020. You can visit the gift tree in the Wonderland lobby (located on the corner across from Forever 21 and H&M) to find their wish lists and return unwrapped gifts to the same location. On December 13th, volunteers will have a wrapping party and bring the gifts to Home Instead Senior Care. 

Senior’s Greetings 

Send a senior a holiday greeting card! Carriage Crossing began their letters to seniors initiative earlier this year and now, they are asking the community to drop off holiday themed cards. You can drop letters off in the mailbox outside of Barnes & Noble from November 6th to December 13th!  

Socially Distant Santa 

The weekend before Thanksgiving, Santa returns! From November 21st to December 24th, you can book a private appointment – the link will be released by Carriage Crossing closer to Santa’s arrival – to take photos with Santa and pass along your wish lists for Christmas gifts. Only one reservation will be allowed into the space at a time to allow for social distancing and sanitizing between visits, and photos will be taken from six feet away. 

Let’s start the holiday season off right, and bring some cheer and joy to a tumultuous year!
