This Saturday, December 4, looks to be a peach of a day for Santa’s arrival in Rockport. Last year it was blowing a gale and still hundreds of nice and not naughty children came to scream “IT’S SANTA!!” at the top of their lungs as Santa stepped off the lobster boat at 3:45 PM.
This is what the weatherman predicts. Partly cloudy in the forties with a bare hint of a wind.
Last year Santa hooked up with the Ocean Reporter:

Who gets to drive the rotund red one into the harbor this year? (The competition has been fierce.) I’ll be there to report what boat and if there is enough whipped cream and marshmallows to cover all the gallons of hot chocolate that will be handed out in Dock Square when Santa lights the tree.
So get your grog on and don’t miss him. Spend the whole day on Bearskin Neck but at 3:45 PM be there or it’s coal in your stocking.
