What/Who:
Celebrate the holiday season with Santa and the Grinch™ at CityPlace Doral! Santa is jolly to announce that Cherry Hill Programs (CHP), the industry leader in experiential photography that operates hundreds of holiday photo experiences across the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, will launch the exclusive Holiday Magic Village experience at CityPlace Doral this season. Operated directly by CHP, Holiday Magic Village is the guests’ one-stop-shop for the ultimate holiday photo experience. Under the same roof at CityPlace Doral, families will have access to photos with Santa Claus in Santa’s Workshop and The Grinch’s Grotto™ with The Grinch™ ©Dr. Seuss.

When guests arrive at the Holiday Magic Village, they will be immersed in holiday magic. A newly designed Santa’s Workshop and elaborate Grinch’s Grotto™ are joined by My Photo Op Spot – a virtual photo experience that instantly places guests’ personal photos from their personal devices in festive holiday backgrounds to download, save and share on social media. Guests can snap a selfie or upload photos already taken from their device using CHP’s My Photo product. This proprietary software removes the background of the photo like magic. Guests can scan the QR code displayed in the queue at the photo experience. My Photo Op Spot offers an opportunity for families, friends, and children to appear in different holiday backgrounds – making it easy to celebrate the holiday magic with everyone no matter where they’re located. Guests can tag their friends when they share on social media with the #MyPhotoOpSpot.

Shops at Merrick Park, Coral Gables’ pristine destination for fine shopping and dining, will present “Back to Tradition,” its 18th Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, sponsored by Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, on Thursday, November 18, at 6 p.m. One of the largest tree lighting ceremonies and holiday celebrations in South Florida, the event will include the 50-foot tree-lighting and a live performance by South Florida’s own Preston Howell, a contestant on NBC’s The Voice. Attendees will also enjoy a variety of interactive activities, entertainment and a highly anticipated appearance by Santa Claus who will kick-off the festive season.

The retail destination will transform into a winter wonderland with a live performance by Miami’s Preston Howell of NBC’s The Voice who will serenade attendees with holiday favorites. Howell was one of just eight singers to turn four chairs during the blind auditions on The Voice Season 17. The teen accomplished the feat with a cover of “Dream a Little Dream of Me” by The Mamas and the Papas, landing a spot on Team John Legend.

The Miami Royal Ballet and Coral Gables Senior High School Gablettes will add to the festive spirit along with face painters, holiday costumed characters and a photo booth. Attendees are encouraged to spread the warmth of the season and bring unwrapped toys for children in care of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.

One of the event highlights is Santa’s grand arrival down San Lorenzo Avenue on the Coral Gables Fire Department’s fire truck. Special guest host Belkys Nerey, award-winning co-anchor of WSVN Channel 7 News, will help flip the magical switch along with Coral Gables Mayor Vince Lago to illuminate the tree, signaling the official start of the holiday shopping season.

This year’s popular event will introduce a new majestic 50-foot tree with a six-foot-tall, illuminated star topper. The tree is adorned with LED custom colorful lighting, concert grade sound and a snow show. Shoppers can view and pose with the holiday tree through early January 2022.

Finally – if you make it through all three unique haunts and still have some stiffness in your spine, take a risk and enjoy unlimited carnival rides, delectable treats, and carnival games at the House of Horror midway. See you there…if you dare!

The unique experience will include a car trip down the ‘Runway of blinking lights’ before visiting the Elf’s Toy Factory before finally stopping off at Santa’s Cabin– sort of like a Christmas Safari.

You are welcome to wear their favorite Christmas pajamas or ugly sweaters as they travel through the experience and the most important thing all the kids can bring their letter to Santa.
Mr & Mrs. Claus have been hard at work building a North Pole Outpost, so their team of elves can carry out their important operations safely and socially distant.

The Salvation Army serves over 15,000 Broward County residents, every year, and more than 70% of its funding comes directly from the community – individuals, groups and businesses.

The race is named after The Salvation Army’s iconic Red Kettles which are staffed during the holidays to collect funds for families in need. Last year, The Salvation Army of Broward County raised $213,205 in just five short weeks in November and December. In addition to the Kettle Krush 5K and the holiday Red Kettle program, The Salvation Army of Broward County feeds hundreds of families through its annual free Thanksgiving meal initiative in partnership with The Cheesecake Factory, and distributes over 8,000 gifts to over 2,100 children though its Angel Trees and Holiday Toy Shop.

Registration fees for the third annual Kettle Krush Virtual 5K are $10 for kids (ages 2 – 8), $20 per participant (18 and under) and $25 for registrants (19 and over). Team registration is $20 per person for teams of three or more. The first 100 participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt. T-shirts can be picked-up, in advance, during a special drive-through at The Salvation Army of Broward Area Command, 1445 West Broward Blvd Fort Lauderdale, on Wednesday, September 16 (3 – 7 p.m.), Thursday, September 17 (11 a.m. – 2 p.m.) and Friday, September 18 (4 p.m. – 8 p.m.).
The virtual event will feature a live leader board link updated every two minutes with real-time tabulation of overall, gender and age group categories provided by AccuChipUSA, Inc. and awards will be given to runners within the “top 3” categories and age groups.

During the virtual race time window, The Salvation Army of Broward encourages participants to email selfies, photos or short videos of their personal race with the hashtag #BrowardKettleKrush2020 for consideration to be posted on the organization’s social media sites. Participants can also display their chosen racecourse by uploading maps from the following fitness app trackers: Strava, Garmin, Polar, MapMyRun, RunKeeper, MovesCount, EndoMondo and TomTom Sports (course maps will be publicly viewable).

The Salvation Army of Broward County Virtual Kettle Krush 5K is sponsored by FPL, Fast Printz, Forney Construction, Edd Helms Group, Acme Barricades and Bimbo Bakeries.
