2020 has shaken up our traditions a bit, but there’s still a lot of merry to be had! Advance reservations often required. There are still so many lovely events, activities, and outings in celebration of the Christmas season, we thought we’d make a list to help you narrow in on a few that sound best for your family.

Alameda South Shore Holiday Activities for Families

Shopping, Santa, and Cinema Under the Stars are all part of this holiday season at Alameda South Shore Center. In addition to magical new decorations throughout the center, look for new safe and socially distanced family traditions including photos with Santa, a reindeer scavenger hunt and outdoor holiday movies. For details, reservations and a list of stores, visit their website.

Find more holiday magic at South Shore Center

Come enjoy FREE holiday movies Fridays and Saturdays in Neptune Court at 5:30 pm. Enjoy Santa Claus from a safe distance. Find all your holiday gifts locally. Hunt for reindeer all around the shopping center.
