Holiday Lights in Wantagh, NY

The holidays are going to be a little different in 2020 — but one thing that won’t change is the wealth of festive light shows scheduled for Wantagh and Long Island. To help you get into the spirit of the season, here’s a look at three of the most dazzling events you can take part in this year.

Magic of Lights

This 2.5-mile drive-thru display, which runs through Jan. 2 at Jones Beach State Park, is one of the most spectacular holiday light shows in all of greater New York. Digital animations, favorite holiday characters, a tunnel of lights, and a huge new tree display are sure to make Magic of Lights a trip to remember for the entire family.

Smith Point Light Show

Take in bright displays, celebrate togetherness, and benefit the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County with a visit to the Smith Point Light Show. Held through Dec. 30 at Smith Point County Park in Shirley, this 1.5-mile drive-thru features all sorts of beautiful arrangements and breathtaking exhibits to make your holidays jolly.

Riverhead Holiday Light Show

Boasting dozens of incredible displays, the Riverhead Holiday Light Show is one of Long Island’s biggest celebrations. This year’s version takes place through Dec. 30 and includes more than 1.5 miles of drive-thru fun — including resplendent programmed lights that dance to the tune of music you can play through your vehicle’s speakers.

Here at Wantagh Mazda, we’re especially thankful for these holiday light shows and the joy they bring to our community. Here’s wishing you the best of times as you celebrate safely with your loved ones this year.

DIY Father’s Day Gifts for Your Kids to Try

Father's Day GiftsIf you want to give your significant other a more meaningful and affordable present than golf clubs or clothes for Father’s Day, consider giving him a handmade present. Your partner will appreciate these DIY Father’s Day gifts, which are both creative and easy enough for your children to make.

Decorated Spatula

If your partner is a self-proclaimed grill master, gift him a decorated spatula. Simply buy a new spatula, and then let your children paint or add stickers as they please. They could add a special message, their dad’s name or something artistic on the spatula.

Snack Jar

 For this gift, all you need is a jar, a blank sticker and your partner’s favorite snack food. Your children can fill the jar with snacks, like chocolate, nuts and pretzels. Then, they can leave a Father’s Day note on the sticker and stick it to the jar.

Bottle tags

With personalized bottle tags, your partner can have something lovely to read each time he grabs a drink. To make these tags, your children can either create their own messages for their dad or find funny puns online. Then, you can print these messages on card stock and affix them to his drink of choice.

We at Wantagh Mazda hope you and your family enjoy making these DIY gifts and have a fantastic Father’s Day. If you’re looking for a new vehicle to take on family outings in Wantagh, New York, check out our inventory online.
