On Monday, October 10, 2016 — Columbus Day — we will welcome the Jolly Old Elf himself, a.k.a. Santa Claus, for a special open house at Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. There will be opportunities for photos with Santa, with the lighthouse and the beautiful Piscataqua River as a backdrop.
As with all our open houses, there is a suggested donation of $4 for adults and $2 for children to climb the lighthouse. Full details are available here.
All proceeds from this open house will go to Friends of Flying Santa, the nonprofit organization that brings seasonal cheer to U.S. Coast Guard families in the Northeast. The tradition the Friends are keeping alive dates back to 1929. To learn more about this wonderful organization, click here.
