Miami Mom Collective Guide to Snowfalls & Santa Sightings

A Resource of Miami Area Snowfalls & Santa Sightings

Snow and Santa. They just go together so well, don’t they? 

Though there’s no chance of snow in South Florida, we’ve found several venues that will feature both. Did someone say Christmas card photo?  Mark your calendars and get excited, people. Santa Claus is coming to town, and there will be snow and mistletoe. Even in Miami.

If you know of any snowfalls and Santa sightings that you do not see listed in our guide, we’d love to know! Send an email to info{at} 

The entire team at Miami Mom Collective wishes you and your family a joyful and fun-filled holiday season!
