This mid-December weekend is jam-packed with holiday spirit, from seasonal shows to Santa visits to theme park fun. Santa's on track this weekend, climbing aboard Allaire's Christmas Express and Heaven Hill Farm's free train rides, while stopping for Cookies & Cocoa at Reeves Reed Arboretum, and wild fun at Cape May Zoo's Santa's Family Workshop.

Theme parks are decked out for the holidays. Rides, shows, and Santa are all part of the thrills at Six Flags Holidays in the Park and Christmas Fantasy with Lights at Storybook Land

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of holiday preps, and take in a kid-friendly show, like Paw Patrol Live: Race to the Rescue, The Laurie Berkner Band Holiday Celebration Concert, or Dragons Love Tacos.
