With visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads and the smell of fresh pine, the holidays allow us to hit the pause button, celebrate, and remember to express our goodwill. The season, abuzz with so much activity, can make choosing events difficult, but The Queen Mary comes through once again this year by creating a little bit of Christmas magic in the majestic shadow of the now-docked historic ocean liner. It’s a family affair with sparkling lights, an outdoor ice rink, festive food, live performances and a little bit of old fashioned pizzaz. There are photo opportunities galore with giant gumdrops, nutcrackers, a 3-dimensional moon prop, sudsy soap snow flurries and a meet & great with Santa and his wife. A beautiful vintage style carousal is fun for all ages and so it is a little toy train trip. The ice skating rink is 6,000 square feet and comes with skate rental, so it pays off to be courageous and take a few slippery spins to burn off the abundance of sugary treats.
