Christmas and Hanukkah collide this weekend with celebrations galore. Chug-a-chug to the Holiday Model Train Display in Babylon. Celebrate the first night of Hanukkah with a menorah lighting, crafts, magic show, latkes, and more in Long Beach. Take a stroll along the sea to marvel at the Boardwalk Lights, too. Get out on the ice in Port Washington for an added holiday skating session.
We've also rounded up a dozen great activities for Christmas Eve, and kids can also enjoy Hanukkah fetes this weekend, including The Chanukah Experience in Merrick. There are also holiday light shows and local homes lit up with holiday cheer, inflatables, and synchronized Christmas tunes.
