East Providence, RI: Pomham Rocks Lighthouse Santa and his elves will be returning to Narragansett Bay onboard their holiday-themed boat. Children and adults of all ages are invited to welcome and wave to Lighthouse Santa as he travels along the East Providence coastline sending holiday greetings. There will be plenty of time to take photos, too. Lighthouse Santa will be quite visible in his jolly red suit and will be ringing a handbell and waving to onlookers along the shoreline.
Weather-permitting, Lighthouse Santa’s visit is scheduled for Saturday, December 4 between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Lighthouse Santa will begin his journey from Bullocks Cove in Barrington/Riverside at 9:30 a.m. and will be traveling along the eastern shoreline of East Providence toward Providence. He will remain in his boat and will not be going ashore during this visit.
Due to weather and tidal conditions, the time schedule is an estimate for seeing Lighthouse Santa and his elves. Their travel itinerary and best viewing locations will be: 9:30 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. for Narragansett Terrace and 9:45 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. for Rose Larisa Park-Bullocks Point Avenue. At approximately 10:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., they are scheduled to be in the Sabin Point Park-Shore Road area. Then, they will travel further north along the Riverside coastline and East Bay Bike Path to Pomham Rocks Lighthouse. It is a ¼ mile walk on the Bike Path from Riverside Square. The boat will arrive and circle the Lighthouse between 11:15 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
After visiting the Pomham Rocks Lighthouse area, Santa and his elves will travel northward along the East Providence coastline toward Squantum Woods and over to Providence, the Hurricane Barrier and Waterplace Park. From there, they will continue their journey by heading south on Narragansett Bay along the western shoreline of Providence and Cranston.
