Black Santa Photo Experience

About the event

Want to add a little spice to your child’s yearly photo with Santa? Head to Southfield Pavilion Dec. 15-16  for a unique photo with a very special Santa Claus at the fourth annual Black Santa Photo Experience.

This free annual event is presented by Metro Parent’s sister magazine, BLAC Detroit, and aims to celebrate diversity by bringing local kids together with a black Santa, to tell him what they want for Christmas and to even snap a photo with him.
