20+ Santa Claus Activities for LI Kids During the Christmas Season

If you're looking to mix it up with jolly ol' St. Nick at an outing that's a wee bit different, we have rounded up some of our favorite Santa activities across Long Island. While some events are FREE and require no preregistration, many that are require advanced tickets. These events are quite popular and can sell out early, so you'll want to book reservations as soon as possible.
