Santa by the Sea in Del Mar Village Dec. 6

Santa Claus is coming to Del Mar! Join Santa and Mrs. Claus in the L’Auberge Amphitheater from 3-6 p.m. Dec. 6.

Take your own holiday pictures with St. Nick and pop your wish list in the North Pole Mailbox. Santa will be taking the lists and checking them twice, so don’t be surprised if you get a personal letter back from him!

Seasonal tunes will be performed throughout the afternoon by the original Dickens Carolers, and the Rad Hatter will be on hand to assist in creating fabulous and festive fedoras.

Enjoy holiday treats and refreshments available from local restaurants, and let the little ones participate in the annual Passport to the North Pole, collecting signatures from participating Main Street retailers that can be redeemed for special prizes.

The day culminates in the holiday tree lighting ceremony scheduled for 5 p.m. at the L’Auberge Amphitheater. All activities are free to the public.
