Santa Claus is coming to town! (Actually, he’s already here in many ‘hoods.) We found more places to grab a snap with St. Nick than ever before this year. Here’s where you can meet the jolly man himself in his red and white glory, snag a picture, a hug, and even lunch with him. Click through to find your family’s Santa!

Pet-Friendly Santa: Petco

Make sure ALL your children, even your furry ones, get a snapshot with Santa this year. Petco stores in Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Staten Island, and Manhattan will host the chain's annual Photos with Santa event on Saturday, 12/2 and 12/16 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. 

For a donation of $9.95, you'll receive a holiday photo of you and your pet, and 100% of the proceeds help animals in need this holiday season. Dress your furry babies in their finest festive attire and let them take a well-deserved turn on Santa’s lap with the kids.
