TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Governor's Square Mall is hosting a "sensory-friendly" Santa experience on November 24.

Saying that this particular Santa experience "welcomes all ages and abilities," the event will allow families with all spectrums of special needs to experience a visit with Santa before the mall opens to the public for the day. Accommodations will be made for any sensory, physical, and developmental needs of their audience.

The event will be held at Governor's Square Mall (1500 Apalachee Parkway) on Sunday, November 24 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. When you get to the mall, come in through the main entrance near Talbots and Loft and then go to the Santa set in the Dillard's court.
