Chamber Santa-land: Take a photo with Santa & Mrs. Claus, toy drive, holiday performances and give-aways

The Holiday Season is rapidly approaching!  Manhasset Chamber of Commerce and Shop Manhasset are working on many ways to help our small businesses to encourage the community to Shop Local, Spend Local, Eat Local and Enjoy Local.

This year, the Manhasset Chamber of Commerce will be hosting “A Merry Little Manhasset” to be held on Small Business Saturday Nov. 27.  The Chamber will bring festivities to Plandome Road to encourage the community to support small local businesses!  Kick-off will begin at 11AM at 346 Plandome Road, a Santa-land for the day. The Munsey Park and Shelter Rock Elementary Chamber Choirs will perform a winter concert before Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive.

Some other festivities include: Candy Cane and Hot Cocoa Bomb giveaways, free movie screenings at 1:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. at Manhasset Cinemas, performances by the Middle School Chamber Singers at 4:00 p.m. and Moves and Motions School of Dance at 3:00 P.M. and more! See full event time schedule at

Bring a new unwrapped toy and help a local child, ages 1-18. Manhasset Chamber will host a toy drive for Adventures in Learning at Santa-land for Nov, 27 only.

The Holiday Scavenger Hunt begins Nov. 27 until Dec 31. Visit the chamber Santa-Land on Small Business Saturday to get a Scavenger Hunt Card. How many ways can you support a small business this Holiday season? Upload a photo and #merrymanhasset #shopmanhasset on social media!

Thanks to Manhasset Beautification, Plandome Road now has Holiday Lights on the beautifully decorated light posts and planters!  To add more holiday cheer throughout the town, the Chamber will also be hosting a “Holiday Window Display Contest”. Voting will begin Dec. 3, same day as Christmas Tree Lighting, where the Chamber will announce the winner of the “Our Community One Family”poster contest winners.

While enjoying the festivities, make sure to stroll around town and do some local shopping and grab a bite to eat! Manhasset Chamber of Commerce encourages all to come our and support our small local businesses.
