While you begin to mark your calendar this December for holiday parties and special events, don't forget to schedule in a photo with Santa! You will likely spot him in a holiday parade or light show, and maybe even at a tree lighting event, but in case you missed the big jolly fellow, he will be coming to a church, restaurant, or other eatery near you! If you are looking for a fun outing with family or friends with kids and you also want to take your annual photo with Santa, look nor further than these festive events. Some of the more quirky ones include Santa Brunch at the Long Island Aquarium, and even a pajama meet and greet with Santa at United Skates of America!
Be sure to check ahead to see if your event requires registration in advance. For some events, a photo comes with the cost of breakfast, but others are BYOC - bring your own camera - so take a look at the fine print and come prepared and ready to eat!
