2014 Surfin’ Santa Blog Photo Contest

With Surfin’ Santa’s Arrival around the corner, it’s time for our annual Surfin’ Santa blog photo contest! 

If you’ve participated in our last blog photo contest, then you know the drill.  If not, this is how it goes:

Send me the coolest most awesome photo of you and your loved ones enjoying yourselves at the Surfin’ Santa Arrival for a chance to win a $50 Seaport Village Gift Certificate.  Valid at ALL of our shops  and restaurants.  I want to get into the holiday spirit and join in on your fun, so send me all you got!

This should be a fairly easy contest for you, because I know you’ll be snapping away while waiting for Santa’s arrival and while you take photos with him on his 6ft wave! We will also have face painting, stilt walkers, a toy soldier show, and eco ornament making with Birch Aquarium!  So, I’m sure you’ll get a contest worthy photo!

Send your photos to by Friday, December 6th.  I will put all the photos entered on this blog for voting.  The photo with the most votes by December 15th will be our winner! 

Can’t wait to see all the shots!  Remember, I need those photos by December 6th!

P.s. if you’re going to post your photos on your social media channels during the event, make sure to use #Surfinsanta14, #Seaportvillageholiday, and #Seaportvillage so we can follow along!

Happy Holidays!

Selfie Station at Village Hat Shop

Who wants to try on hats and then take selfies with them?  We all do, right?  You can do that now at The Village Hat Shop located inside Seaport Village


The Village Hat Shop has just acquired a new selfie machine!  The selfie machine takes your photo and you can then post that photo on any of your social media accounts or you can email it to yourself.  How fun is that?!  A little extra souvenir from the village that you can show your friends and family!

The Village Hat Shop is one of the original Seaport Village merchants and it’s amazing to see how much technology has changed their store.  So, the next time you’re around Seaport Village, stop in at Village Hat Shop and check out their great hats then take a selfie.

Happy snapping!
