Christmas At Sea Open House
Sunday December 8, 1-4:30 pm
Come celebrate the holiday season in Oswego’s gaily decorated “Historic Maritime District.“ This program is free of charge.
Munch on homemade cookies while enjoying our uniquely decorated holiday trees. 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 twelve-foot high Christmas tree.
At 2 pm, Santa arrives by boat, transported to the West Pier by the United States Coast Guard-Oswego Station’s Cutter. There is no need to have your child wait in a long line. Unlike a mall store, children can participate in crafts, listen to stories with Grandma Christmas, hear music or watch the train displays run while waiting to take their turn with Santa Claus. He will not leave until he hears every child’s wish.
