Newburyport Santa Parade & Tree Lighting
A Newburyport tradition! As the holiday season approaches, Santa & Mrs. Claus arrive in the most fitting way for this seaport town... by US Coast Guard boat! Welcome Santa on the Sunday after Thanksgiving as he and Mrs. Claus dock at the boardwalk and begin to parade through downtown Newburyport, then gather in Market Square for the annual Christmas tree lighting and carols.
Watch as Mr. and Mrs. Claus arrive with a Coast Guard escort at the boardwalk on the waterfront and parade through town before lighting the tree in Market Square!
