Things To Do with Westchester Kids This Weekend, December 8-9, 2018

The weekend ahead is jam-packed with Santa sightings, breakfasts with Santa, craft fairs, and a host of other seasonal attractions. How to optimize each weekend this month requires some planning and even strategy.

The recurring holiday events taking place throughout the month are now supplemented with a fresh batch of festive fanfare, including Dickens' Christmas Carol and multiple ways to incorporate elements of nature into your holiday decor. Holiday performances continue, including Amahl and the Night Visitors. For a break from holiday hullaballoo, have a laugh at Silent Films with Live Piano Music.

Read on for all our top picks—then be sure to consult our Event Calendar for the full panoply of options (and there are many!). Don’t forget to check out our Holiday Fun Guide to plan the remaining days of the season and our December GoList for our top picks for the month (including events that are unrelated to holiday fanfare).
