Santa's Port Stop
December 7th - Santa arrives at 12 noon. This event is cherished by children of all ages and the look of pure joy is apparent when Santa arrives on the boardwalk. As Santa always does, he "Ho, Ho, Ho's" while walking up the boardwalk making way to his chair under the large white tent. The kids literally "jump" onto his lap as they tell him what he can bring them on Christmas morning. There is plenty of hot cider and cookies for all to enjoy.
