Come and celebrate the holiday season in Oswego’s Historic Maritime District, located on the West First Street Pier.

In addition to enjoying homemade cookies and punch, visitors are encouraged to enjoy new museum exhibits, view maritime themed holiday trees and see the model train village exhibition courtesy of Fred Reagan of the Oswego Valley Railroad Association.

Santa Claus will arrive at 2 p.m. via US Coast Guard boat.

There is no need to have your child wait in a long line to see him, as there will be crafts, festive stories and music to enjoy while you wait!

Local children’s author, Linda Jeanne Germain, will be on hand to sign her new book, “Squeakers, Whiskers and their Lighthouse Adventure.”

This event is free and open to the public.

The museum and Treasure Chest Gift Shop are open daily, 1 – 5 p.m. for your holiday shopping convenience.
