Holidays by Design at SOCO + The OC Mix

Calling all of Santa’s little helpers! With the holiday season upon us, SOCO + The OC Mix invites children and families to celebrate with the center’s annual Holidays by Design event series.

Holidays at SOCO

Beginning Saturday, November 30 and taking place every Saturday through December 21, families are invited to enjoy a variety of festive activities and shopping that will be offered throughout the center, including Holiday Storytime with Mrs. Claus, a complimentary, winter wonderland-themed photo booth for children and families, live holiday music from local performers, and more!


A pop-up photo booth will be located inside the OC Mix where guests can take beautiful holiday photos in front of a seasonal backdrop (complete with props that are perfect for this jolly time of year). The photo booth will open at 11:00 a.m. each Saturday and close at 2:00 p.m.


Little ones will have an opportunity to join a very special Holiday Storytime session located inside the OC Mix at the entrance between Rich Elixirs and Temakira from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. featuring Mrs. Claus herself! Each week, Mrs. Claus will read a different children’s storybook followed by an arts & crafts session where kids will create a special take-home memory that relates to the story. While Holiday Storytime is free to attend, guests must RSVP in advance online by clicking the link below:


Performers inside the OC Mix will play live music from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. which shoppers can enjoy while indulging in treats and holiday drinks while they cross off items from their shopping lists.
