Actual, real-life reindeer will be among the extremely jolly attractions at Saturday’s Magic of Montauk holiday fair, which will also include a “local hot cocoa contest,” decorated holiday path (sponsored by Lighting the Christmas Joy decorating services), gift booths, kids’ activities, food trucks, a holiday bar with beer, mulled wine, and Montaukila tastings.

The fair will take place on the downtown green 2 to 7 p.m, with live music by Little Head Thinks from 4 to 7. The rain date is Sunday. 

On Sunday, before heading back to the North Pole to finish his chores, Santa will pay a visit to the Montauk Firehouse to meet with children, listen to Christmas wishes, and pose for photographs. Before he arrives by fire truck at 1 p.m., there will be games and crafts, a bouncy house, cookies, popcorn, and cotton candy.
