Hong Kong, 3rd December, 2019 – Discover the traditions of the festive season at LANDMARK, where Santa Paws invites you to celebrate the spirit of Christmas, brought joyfully to life by the colourful characters of Santa Paws Village.
Nestling under snow-dusted Reindeer Mountain, Santa Paws Village is immersed in centuries of Christmas tradition. The township is the home to more than 90 hand-crafted village characters, gathered together to enjoy Santa Paws’ magical market in celebrating all the festive sentiments of the Christmas period, including exciting surprises, good wishes, togetherness, love, and joy, together with the warmth, giving, light and wonder of the season.
In keeping with LANDMARK’s long history of serving generations of Hong Kong shoppers, many of the village characters are dressed in attire fashioned from vintage clothing, with many joyful scenes created from antique toys over a century old, sourced worldwide. Also, look out for Santa Paws’ new friend, the snow-white Polar Paws.
“This year LANDMARK celebrates the true spirit of Christmas with Santa Paws and village characters in their wonderful Santa Paws Village,” explained Mr Raymond Chow, Executive Director of Hongkong Land. “Visitors to Santa Paws Village at LANDMARK are reminded of fond memories of Christmases past and the joy of giving during Christmas present.”
The festive township, created by best-selling children’s book illustrator Pedro Serapicos, is LANDMARK’s ‘must-see’ Christmas attraction. From now until 1st January, visitors will experience winter wonders, as snow falls on the festive scene and every 30 minutes specially choreographed light and music bring the village to life. Be thrilled by exciting surprises as a series of stunning augmented reality experiences delivered to your mobile device will showcase billboards and buildings revealing the hidden traditions of the festive season.
