More than 50 families donned their holiday’s finest Saturday and filled the Riverhead Senior Center in Aquebogue, awaiting for the arrival of Santa Claus.
The annual event is organized by the town’s recreation department.
The department’s staff decorated the center with Christmas trees, wreaths and boxes wrapped for the holiday.
There was also a holiday “craft room” where children colored, decorated stockings and reindeer magnets, and made necklaces, ornaments and Santa hats.
Children got to get their pictures taken with Santa. And of course, there was hot chocolate and cookies for all.
