Immerse yourself and your family in a winter wonderland this holiday season at Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus, NJ. From Nov. 18 to Jan. 2, the shopping mall will be hosting their Season to Sparkle experience which allows guests to take pictures with five different installments of winter scenery. 

What is Season to Sparkle?

Season to Sparkle is an immersive photo-op opportunity for friends and families to capture their most memorable holiday moments. Participants can glam up and have fun taking pictures in the scenes of their liking. Whether it be glitz and glamour, a woodsy wonderland, ice cavern, a fantasy forest, or a picture-perfect scene. To add to the excitement, participants even have the option to make it snow in their pictures. 

Visitors are able to bring a change in outfits as well since fitting rooms are available on-site for the experience and masks are not required for photos. Those who are interested in participating in the event have the ability to reserve tickets now through Jan. 2.

Overall, the experience takes about 30 minutes and is available Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m and Sundays from 12 p.m to 6 p.m.
