Here’s an idea for a free night of entertainment in between all the running and shopping you have to do to get ready for Christmas: take a night off with the fam and check out the holiday light displays in Long Beach and (relatively) nearby cities.
Activities Throughout the Holiday Season
Long Beach's most dazzling waterfront shops and restaurants are dressed up in their holiday best! Take photos with Santa, check out costumed holiday characters, and enjoy arts and crafts stations - or pop down to Brickersville and create some LEGO Christmas crafts.
This ongoing event also includes FREE front-row seating to the Shoreline Yacht Club's annual Christmas Boat Parade of 1000 lights on December 7, so don't miss out!
The Long Beach public libraries are pulling out all the stops this season! Stop by all month long to enjoy storytime with Santa, make your own wreath lessons, and bilingual craft hour. Take a break from this cold, rainy season, find your nearest location, and enjoy fine holiday craft-making and storytelling that's bound to make memories!
It's time for Santa to get his deep sea diving gear on! Catch penguin parades, marvel at gingerbread houses, and frolic in the real snow play area. Delight in Hanukkah storytelling and take photos with Santa! Best of all, present an official online coupon from the website Dec. 7 - 23 to receive a FREE child admission with purchase of an adult ticket.
Sometimes the best gifts are experiences. And what better way to give your kids a holiday to remember by teaching them how to make their own chocolates? Learn to make, take home (and eat) your tasty treats at Romeo's Chocolates on Pine!
$35 per child. Includes guided chocolate tasting, chocolate creation station time, and more! Recommended for ages 4
