Santa Arrives by Tugboat at Mystic River Park

November 27, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Santa Arrives by Tugboat is coming to the Mystic River Park in Mystic, Connecticut on November 27, 2021 from 2 pm to 4:30 pm followed by the Mystic Holiday Lighted Boat Parade from 6 to 7 pm on the Mystic River.

Thousands gather at the Mystic River Park to watch Santa arrive at 2 pm on a 60’ tugboat, the John Paul, to open his ears to the wishes of children waiting anxiously in line to see him. After a brief break, festivities in the Park resume with the lighting of the Christmas tree at 6 pm.

This event has become a beloved tradition in Mystic over the years– don’t miss out on being part of the festivities by sponsoring our candy canes, parade & more! The Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center will be on site to collect unwrapped toy donations for the holidays. Come out and support a great cause!

Is your boat still in the water through the the holiday season? Decorate your vessel and participate in the 2021 Holiday Lighted Boat Parade. Email solveig@mysticchamber.org for registration and more details.
