Santa’s visit offers a double treat for the children since it not only presents an opportunity to see Santa, but to also step aboard an historic tugboat.

Once on board the 149-foot tugboat, Santa will eagerly accept children’s Christmas wishes. However, due to the cramped conditions on the vessel, only two adults will be permitted to escort the children. While they wait, children will be entertained by holiday videos in the Museum’s Reddin Bridge Room.
 
The event will be held in conjunction with the Museum’s Merry-Time Festival of Trees and will provide the public with a special opportunity to see the trees.
