There will also be rides open to get the full Beach experience. Families can stop along the Christmas shops to find special gifts and treats. On Dec. 22, celebrate Christmas the old-fashioned way by watching carolers who will be singing all around the park. Bring your children along so they can decorate tins, which will be filled with cookies for senior citizens. Continue the fun on Dec. 23 by enjoying dinner with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Sit and dine in the heated Polar Palace where lasagna, salad, breadsticks and more will be served. Children will meet Santa and receive a gift from him.
