Only in Oswego does Santa Claus arrive on a boat.
Come to the H. Lee White Marine Museum from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Dec. 8 for “Christmas at Sea,” the annual open house during the holiday season in Oswego’s gaily decorated “Historic Maritime District.“
Munch on homemade cookies while enjoying the uniquely decorated holiday trees. This year’s theme trees will highlight snow and ice, lighthouses, canoes and sailboats.
Model train displays will be exhibited throughout the building courtesy of the Oswego Valley Railroad Association and Museum.
A vintage Waterfront Village is featured under the 10-foot high Christmas tree.
At 2 p.m., Santa Claus will arrive by U.S. Coast Guard Cutter and there is no need to have your child wait in a long line to see him!
Unlike the mall, children will have plenty to do as they participate in crafts, listen to festive stories, hear music or watch the train display run while waiting to take their turn. Santa will not leave until he hears every child’s wish.
The Museum and Treasure Chest Gift Shop are open daily 1 to 5 p.m.
