Real Santa! 1PM Saturday in Rockport

Trying to research why the real Santa Claus comes to Rockport by fishing boat at 1 PM on Saturday and checking out Les Bartlett History of Rockport here. This tradition goes back a few years. An ancient Rockport Harbormaster made a deal with Kris Kringel many years ago.

On Saturday, the boat arrives at 1PM. All children who have not been naughty need to be there on arrival. Then there is music, egg nog, shops open all afternoon and the Dock Square Tree Lighting at 4PM.

2019: Low tide is at 1:38 PM. Santa at 1 PM will be looking at a very long wet ladder. Will he make it? Of course he will! If Sandra Bullock can climb that ladder in heels, Santa will fly up even if Harbormaster Rosemary Lesch has to goose him.

Santa is really coming to town.
Early on Harbormaster Shorty Lesch would dissapear to fill out Santa paperwork then boom, Santa arrives!
