Holiday Hop

Sun, Nov 24 | 11 am - 1 pm

Kick off the Holiday season at Hilldale Hop and Tree Lighting.  Featuring a visit from Santa and a few of his reindeer, sips + snacks, and a preview of Black Friday shopping deals, this is the holiday lighting event you don’t want to miss.

We know how popular Santa and his reindeer will be, and we encourage you to grab a selfie with Santa’s reindeer who will be grazing on the Green starting at 3:00 while you’re waiting in line to meet the big guy in red.  If you aren’t able to take a photo with Santa at Holiday Hop, he’ll return to Hilldale on December 6th in the Macy’s Atrium for his regular holiday hours, which you can find here.

  • 4:00 – 6:00 PM: Warm up with hot cocoa at Blended, Forage, Brown and Beam, kate spade, Paddywax Candle Bar, and bartaco.
