Southside Hospital will hold its annual Holiday Spectacular on December 7th. Starting at 3:00PM the front parking lot of the hospital will be transformed into a winter paradise with face painting, petting zoo, and arts and craft tent as well as a gaming trailer. At 5:30PM the show will start with speeches from local dignitaries and politicians before we welcome in Santa! Following Santa’s arrival will be performances by the North Shore Dance Studio (Huntington), the Center Stage Studio Dancers (Farmingdale), the St. Patrick’s School Choir (Bay Shore) as well as four finalists from the Health to Hollywood Talent Show. Southside Hospital will be giving out hot chocolate, their famous warm baked cookies throughout the event as well as gifts for all children who sit with Santa Claus.
