Named one of the 10 best Santa sightings by USA Today, Santa will return to the San Diego Harbor via watercraft for the eleventh annual Surfin’ Santa’s Arrival celebration at Seaport Village. Sporting boardshorts and his favorite Hawaiian shirt, Seaport Village’s Santa will spread holiday cheer in true Southern California fashion on Saturday, Nov. 26.

After a special waterfront arrival at 1 p.m., visitors of all ages can pose for free photos with Santa on his giant surfboard and six-foot wave until 5 p.m. A festive parade along the boardwalk, kid’s crafting activities and live street performances will keep visitors entertained throughout the holiday event.

In addition to enjoying the holiday cheer, visitors can participate in Small Business Saturday at Seaport Village. This event celebrates the Shop Small movement to get shoppers to patronize 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.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
