MILWAUKEE (Nov. 14, 2019) – With snow on the ground, it’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas and this year Bayshore is excited to present new interactive holiday displays and a visit from jolly old Saint Nick himself!

Kicking off November 16 and running every Saturday (10 a.m. – 6 p.m.) and Sunday (11 a.m. – 6 p.m.) until December 22, Santa Claus will be setting up shop in the Rotunda to capture your holiday wishes. Bayshore’s new Smiles with Santa invites families to bring down the little ones for a visit and snap a photo on their own device – free of charge!

Plus, for every memory captured, shared on social media and tagged #BayshoreSmiles, Bayshore will donate $1 to support the local Alzheimer’s Association programs and services.

“The holiday season gives us an opportunity to join together and celebrate as one community, while having a little fun and supporting a great cause along the way,” said Kirk Williams, managing director for Cypress Equities. “No matter how you celebrate the season, everyone is welcome at Bayshore to shop, dine and join in the merriment.”

In addition to the man in the big red coat, Bayshore has partnered with Retailworks, Inc., an award-winning interior design, display and branding firm, to create a series of lively and awe-inspiring holiday experiences designed to bring joy for the whole family.

The custom, holiday-themed storefronts from the creative masterminds at Retailworks feature 3D designs that capture the spirit of the season and include Shop. Dine. Play. Stay.; Sparkle This Season; Fashion, Fun & Festivities; Read, Drink and Be Merry; and Winter Wonderland.

“Whether it’s a fun twist on a holiday classic or a more traditional display, we wanted each space to tell a story unique to the season,” said Lyn Falk, president and founder of Retailworks.

Other Instagram-worthy photo opportunities include retro displays from the ‘50s, ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s that offer a festive backdrop for a holiday-themed photo incorporating Bayshore’s history.
