On Wednesday, December 21st, there will be a rare opportunity to spot Santa during his visit to the area’s largest chimney – the six-story-tall forward smokestack on America’s Flagship, the SS United States!  Santa’s visit to the ship will coincide with the lighting of the ship’s funnels and other portions of the famed ocean liner for the holiday season. 

Members of the Mummers Fancy Brigade will be in attendance to contribute to the festive mood. Conservancy supporters are invited to gather at 6:00 p,m. across Columbus Boulevard from Pier 82 near the Chik-fil-A Restaurant and IKEA parking lot across for hot chocolate and specialty cheesesteaks provided by Tony Luke’s – specifically requested by Santa himself!
