Surfin' Santa will ditch his red suit and reindeer to spread his holiday cheer in true SoCal fashion as he makes his annual arrival at Seaport Village.
Named one of the ten best Santa sightings by USA Today, Santa will break out his boardshorts and favorite Hawaiian shirt on November 25 and cruise in from San Diego Bay for the twelfth annual Surfin' Santa celebration at Seaport Village.
Visitors can pose for pictures with Santa on his giant surfboard, riding a six-foot wave. A festive parade along the boardwalk, kids crafting activities, live street performers and a wide variety of unique, local shops will keep visitors busy throughout the event.
In addition to enjoying the holiday cheer and getting a head start on shopping, visitors can participate in Small Business Saturday at Seaport Village. This event celebrates the Shop Small movement to get shoppers to local merchants across the U.S. Seaport Village is home to more than 50 locally-owned businesses, including several that opened with Seaport Village in 1980.
