Holidays at Cross County Center
Suggested Ages: All
Walk through the center of a lit 44 foot tall Christmas tree and look up to the top. A professional photography team will be on site most nights and weekends to capture your photo, which you can print or have emailed directly to you.
Santa is available for (masked, socially-distanced) photos in his toy shop 11 am – 8 pm (photos $39.99+). Online reservations strongly encouraged, but even with reservations the wait can be over an hour; this mall gets crowded.
Throughout the season there will be strolling entertainers from stilt walkers to musical performances at the tree. Also, stop by the pop-up skating rink, and grab a bite at the Holiday Food Truck Market next to the tree.
At this family-friendly happening, tour the first floor of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” author Washington Irving’s house and watch an original shadow puppet short film. A special exhibit highlights how the Legend has lived in the imagination of popular culture through the centuries since its publication.
