Santa Claus is coming to town – and he will be in Sea Isle City soon.

Sea Isle’s 2019 holiday season will be launched in grand style when Saint Nick and his elves join Mayor Leonard Desiderio on Friday, Nov. 29, at 6:30 p.m. during the mayor’s annual tree lighting ceremony at Excursion Park, JFK Boulevard and Pleasure Avenue.

The tree lighting will happen immediately after Sea Isle’s Holiday Parade, which takes place at 6 p.m. along JFK Boulevard.

In addition to Santa’s arrival, the tree lighting will feature a free photo station with Ice Princesses, complimentary refreshments (courtesy of the Sea Isle City Taxpayers Association), holiday souvenirs, a group sing-along with Santa’s elves and other entertainment.
