Promises2Kids Toy Drive

It’s the season of giving and Seaport Village’s Ben & Jerry’s and San Diego Burger Co have partnered up with Promises2Kids to collect much needed toys and gift cards this holiday season. 

Promises2Kids annually provides over 3,300 current and former foster youth in San Diego County with the tools, opportunities, and guidance they need to address the circumstances that brought them into foster care, overcome the difficulties of their past, and grow into healthy, happy and successful adults.

To learn more about Promises2Kids you can watch this video or visit their website at promises2kids.org

Ben & Jerry’s and San Diego Burger Co. are accepting gifts for infants and children up to 18 years old.

To donate, bring a new unwrapped gift or gift card and receive a FREE scoop of your favorite Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream in cup or sugar cone or a FREE large soda from San Diego Burger Co.  Toy collection runs now until Dec 14th.  They have toy collection bins outside both stores at Seaport Village. 

We appreciate your generous donations and wish you a happy holiday season!

Get your 2014 Sufin’ Santa Arrival photos HERE!

Hope you had a blast at the Surfin’ Santa Arrival.  What did you think about the Harbor Police Firestorm boat that brought Santa in? if you took advantage of our FREE photos with Santa on his 6ft wave, which let’s face it, why wouldn’t you- they’re ready to go and you can download them from our flickr page! 

We will be adding the photos without the Seaport Village logo onto the albums later today as well.  So, be on the lookout for those. 

2014 Surfin’ Santa photos

Click on the links below to find your photos with Santa.  We divided them up in half hour increments, so dig deep and remember what time you took your photos.

A little note on how to download your photos:

1) Find your photo from the set, and click on it. This will bring it full-screen, with a black toolbar on the bottom of the screen. Click the very last button on the right (three white dots).. and click on “View All Sizes"

2) Click on the link that says “Original Size”. This will refresh the page with a huge photo. Right click on the photo and then choose “Save Image As..” or similar. You can then save the full version of the JPG photo to your computer for a high-quality print or to forward to friends and family.

Seaport Village is open on Thanksgiving Day

The shopping center will be open 10am-6pm on Thanksgiving Day with free parking! Yes, FREE parking on Thanksgiving Day. 

We are the perfect place to walk off that turkey.  Friends and family in town?  Bring them down to Seaport Village to get them out of the house.  They will be impressed with our gorgeous bay views.

If you are looking for some place to celebrate outside the home (read: you don’t want to cook) you can have Thanksgiving dinner at Harbor House Restaurant and Busters Beach House. They will take care of washing the dishes for you too.  

Seaport Village will also be open on Black Friday, back to regular operating hours, 10am-9pm.

Gobble Gobble!
