Win BIG During 12 Days of Christmas +910 fire icon

On the first day of Christmas, North Hills gave to me …a chance to win some serious SWAG! That's right, NH's epic 12-day giveaway is back with nearly three weeks of goodies up for grabs.

From Dec 4-19, North Hills will be playing Santa Claus, hooking their Insta-followers up with over $1,200 worth of prizes. Details are still hush-hush (you’ll have to tune into their Insta on giveaway days to find out what exactly is up for grabs), but if it's anything like last year, it's gonna be like Christmas coming early.

Be sure to follow North Hills' account, and get ready to tag a friend in their post and pray you make the Nice List!

Oooh + Ahhh at the Annual Tree Lighting

Stretching 41 feet into the sky, North Hills' annual Christmas Tree lighting is a sight to be seen. It's a festive and family-friendly occasion for all, complete with carolers, snow slopes, trackless train rides, kids crafts and activities, balloon twisting, a bounce house, a vendor village, and even an appearance from Santa himself.

Plus, for the first year ever, there'll also be booze on-site so those over 21 can get extra lit.
