Santa Claus visits the Door County Maritime Museum

By Connor Harbit

The Door County Maritime Museum hosted their “Santa on the Tugboat” event Saturday, giving young children a chance to set foot on the historic John Purves tugboat and watch for Santa Claus. Escorted in by the Coast Guard, Santa waved to the children as he arrived before being dropped off onto the tugboat so he could meet the children up close. Carrie Dorski, the Community Engagement Manager of the Door County Maritime Museum, organized the event. She said that while the kids could meet Santa Claus, many of them might take the time to visit the museum for the first time as well.





The event ran from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with guests partaking in several other activities such as letter writing, ornament and card-making and holiday movies.
