Santa Claus in Sea Isle City

What Is It: The Sea Isle City Chamber of Commerce and Revitalization welcomes Santa Claus for a casual meet-and-greet with vacationing children tonight at Excursion Park, JFk Boulevard and Pleasure Avenue.

What To Expect: Santa Claus will speak individually with children and ask them about their Christmas wish lists. He also will distribute seasonal gifts to the youngsters and pose for photos. Parents are reminded to bring their cameras. Afterwards, everyone is invited to watch "A Christmas Story 2," which is rated PG. It will be the evening's "Movie Under the Stars," which is one of Sea Isle's free weekly family events.
