WAFI Mall is ringing in the festive season with its famous Santa’s Grotto and a host of exciting festive celebrations. December 1st saw the grotto get into full festive sparkly swing with Santa lighting up the famous WAFI Christmas tree.


We got a chance to witness the lighting of their Christmas tree and it was the cutest thing ever. There were dancing and moving stuffed animals and elves around the tree and guests can stand a chance to have their photo taken with Santa!

In the spirit of the season, visitors will stand a chance of winning tremendous prizes, including the grand prize of a family trip to Germany courtesy Lufthansa Airlines. Guests will also be given an exceptional package deal where AED 60 nets them a pass to the Kids Connection Play Area, a framed photo with Santa, and a cuddly Gonk toy.

The season sparkles to life with entertaining games including a Pick & Win that gives out instant prizes. WAFI also brings its famous WAFI Mini Bazaar full of seasonal gifts and treats. Here are some photos taken from the first day of the Christmas tree lighting to hype yourself up this holiday season:
