CultureMap's Holiday Pop-up Shop returns to Silver Street Studio on Sunday, December 2, and this holiday affair is one for the whole family. While Mom and Dad sip seasonal cocktails and shop top Houston retailers, we've got plenty in store to keep the kiddos merry and bright all afternoon.
Here's a sneak peek at what's in store. Bonus: Kids under 12 get in free.
Snap a holiday photo with Santa
Skip the mall and snap a photo with Santa at the Holiday Pop-up Shop instead. Santa will be taking photos with kids — and listening to their special Christmas wishes, of course.
Deck the halls in the kids craft area
Randi Lauren Art is hosting this craft area for kids only, where they can decorate ornaments and make their own holiday wreaths to deck the halls.
Stock up at the Sugarfina candy bar
Nothing's sweeter than this. Not only will Sugarfina be on hand with luxe candy for holiday gifts, but the celebrated shop will set up a candy bar so anyone with a sweet tooth can create a goodie bag (for now or later).
Catch a festive performance
Members of Healthy Houston Hip Hop and students from the Rad Academy will pop up with a fun all-ages performance from 2-2:30 pm.
Give back to children in need
In the spirit of the season, Holiday Pop-up Shop guests of all ages are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy for Kids' Meals, this year's beneficiary. This Houston-based organization provides healthy meals for hungry preschool-aged children in Houston.
The CultureMap Holiday Pop-up Shop, sponsored by Verizon, Korbel, and Ketel One, runs 12-4 pm on December 2 at Silver Street Studios. Two-for-one general admission tickets are available now for $10. Verizon Up Members get free VIP access from 11 am-12 pm, and the first 100 Verizon Up Members can snag a sweet swag bag.
