2013 Surfin' Santa Arrival Tips

Santa’s arrival is just around the corner, so I’m going to give you some tips to make sure you have a fantastic time at the event!


Surfin' Santa Tips:

  • When you arrive at Seaport Village, make sure to pick up a “day of brochure”.  That brochure will be your guide to all the fun things happening at the bash including photos with Santa on his 6ft wave!
  • Arrive early to assure you find parking and make it to the boardwalk in time to watch Santa arrive on his jetpack!
  • Parking – there will be parking at the Seaport Village lot as usual.  Enjoy 2 hours of validated parking for $3 in the Seaport Village lot with a minimum purchase of $10. $2 every 30 minutes thereafter or part thereof.  There will be extra parking at the San Diego Convention Center parking lot located on Harbor Dr. Parking will be FREE all day at the convention center.
