Santa Claus is coming to Mystic with the Holiday Lighted Boat Parade in Historic Downtown Mystic. Thousands gather at the Mystic River Park to watch Santa arrive at 2 pm on a 60’ tug boat to open his ears to the wishes of children waiting anxiously in line to see him.

After a brief break, festivities in the park resume with the lighting of the Christmas tree at 6 pm. Spectators then flood both sides of the Mystic River to see the decorated ships pass by. The Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center is collecting unwrapped toy donations. Decorated vessels parade down the Mystic River at 6:20 pm and return to the Mystic River Park, where spectators and judges gather. Boats are judged on creativity and team spirit, and prizes are offered.
