Most Fun While Christmas Shopping

If you’re looking to combine holiday shopping with family-friendly activities, The Shops At Hilltop offers plenty of entertainment. One of the center’s most loved traditions, dating back more than twenty-five years, is the horse-drawn carriage rides. Year after year, dressed in full holiday trim, these carriages are filled with families and friends wanting to experience the joy of simpler times. Two carriages will be running every weekend starting Friday & Saturday, November 27-28, 2020, and continuing through December 20, 2020 from Hilltop East, with boarding near TASTE and Forbes Candies.

This year, special care is being taken to provide a safe, sanitized ride to everyone choosing to board. Carriages will be wiped down between each usage, with each ride restricted to one family or group riding together. In addition, one family member may stand in-line to hold their place for the ride, with each waiting position marked 6 feet apart.

Families may also enjoy visits with strolling Santa, who will treat each child to a free gift! In addition, the Diamond Doll Cloggers will entertain with a joyous holiday performance Saturdays, December 5 and 12, 2020.

All entertainment is free and open to the public. The shopping center is located at 1544 Laskin Road, at the northeast corner of Laskin and First Colonial Roads, Virginia Beach. Masks covering both nose and mouth are required inside. For more information, visit;; or https://instagram/theshopsathilltop
