In what’s said to be a Brandon first, stars of the children’s show Peppa Pig will be on-site for a meet and greet and photo-op from 12-4pm. Folks are asked to bring their own cameras to take free pics with Peppa and George. Also in that same time-frame will be a free photo booth, a Timbit bar, face painting and glitter, Glam Glow Multi Masking by Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique and “large-scale” games including Connect Four, Kerplunk and Operation
Also as part of celebrations, the new approx 10x50 foot mural currently being created in the corridor that connects Sobeys to the rest of the mall will be unveiled at 12 noon.
The first 100 people to buy a $100 Shoppers Mall gift card on Saturday will get bonus $25 gift card. Also throughout the day starting at 9:30am a spin-to-win promotion will be held that gives a chance to win a number of different prizes.
