Visit with Santa

Christmas is always incomplete without a visit to Santa and there are lots of places you can see Santa in Westchester. You can take pictures with Santa and kids can participate in different arts and crafts activities. The best Santa meet and greet experience is at the Ridge Hill at Yonkers where you can meet some of Santa’s friends. For example, Po from the Kung Fu Panda franchise.

Tree Lighting and Holiday Lights Displays

Ring in the season with lots of tree lighting festivities in Westchester. There are lots of activities for the whole family including live music and delicious refreshments. Get to enjoy spectacular light displays at Westchester’s Winter Wonderland that has over two million lights. It also has an ice rink, sleigh rides, and parents can enjoy shopping while the kids visit with Santa. You can also visit certain hallmarks and enjoy beautiful light displays including ERDAJT Holiday Light Display – LaGrangeville, Lyndhurst, Harmony Hall in Sloatsburg, and many more.

Nutcracker and Holiday Shows

During Christmas, there are lots of shows, concerts and performances of all your family holiday classics. Some of the popular shows include the Nutcracker that is performed at the Westchester County Center by the Westchester Ballet Company and Dickens Christmas Carol. You can also enjoy holiday movies at the theater or enjoy a variety of Christmas themed music concerts.

The Polar Express Train

Inspired by the popular children’s book The Polar Express, the polar express train is back for the second year in a row to transport all families on a magical holiday experience. The train ride is an hour and a half long and you are encouraged to come in your pajamas. How cozy? Enjoy a seasonal locomotive excursion as you sip hot chocolate, enjoy seasonal treats, and experience stories and a visit from Santa. Create lasting family memories in Westchester although you have to book early as tickets usually sell out in a heartbeat.

Hanukkah celebrations

This year, the Jewish Festival of Lights has coincided with the Christmas season which only adds to the holiday spirit of December. There are lots of family activities to participate in including community menorah lighting and varied Hanukkah celebrations.
