Santa by the Sea celebration Saturday in Westport

One of Westport’s great traditions, Santa’s annual arrival by boat at the Westport Marina, continues Saturday morning.

He’ll land at 10:30 a.m., escorted by the U.S. Coast Guard, then ride on a fire truck to the Westport Maritime Museum. In the museum’s exhibit hall for the Destruction Island Lighthouse lens, he will talk with children and be available for photos. Parents will need to bring their own cameras.

At the same time, the South Beach Historical Society is hosting a holiday bazaar in McCausland Hall on the museum grounds, with crafts and holiday food items for sale.

At the other end of Westhaven Drive, near the observation tower, things will be lively at the Tackle Box event center. The South Beach Buccaneers, a group that dresses as pirates and participates in many of Westport’s events, will be offering refreshments and “kids only” store where the pirates will help kids shop for presents for parents and siblings. They’ll even help with gift wrapping.
