[ARCHIVED] New! Santa Ferry Ride Will Be Held December 5th

This year Santa Claus will visit Middletown on a ferry instead of a train. The township’s all-new Santa Ferry Ride will be held on Saturday, December 5th. Ferry rides are available at 10:00am or 12:30pm. The yuletide ride aboard the new Molly Pitcher features visits from Santa and friends, caroling, goodie bags, and a wonderful scenic view of the Statue of Liberty. Ferries leave and return to the NY Waterway Belford Ferry Terminal at 10 Harbor Way. Pre-registration is required.

Santa Ferry Ride tickets go on sale for Middletown residents ONLY on Saturday, November 14th from 10:00am to 12:00pm at the Poricy Park Nature Center, 345 Oak Hill Road. Tickets can only be purchased in-person. There is a very limited number of tickets available. Registrants will be assigned a specific seat number at the time of registration. Families that want to sit together MUST register at the same time. Tickets for Middletown residents are $17 per person. Children under one are $5. Cash, credit cards and checks accepted. Proof of residency is required for all ticket sales.

Beginning Monday, November 16th, tickets will be sold to Middletown residents Monday through Friday (excluding holidays) from 9:00am to 3:00pm at the Recreation Office located in the Poricy Park Nature Center, 345 Oak Hill Road. Non-residents may purchase any remaining tickets beginning November 23rd. Tickets for non-residents are $21 per person; children under one are $6.
All riders are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to the Ferry Terminal for Middletown’s Holiday Food Drive. All donations collected by the Mayor’s Food Basket are given to the Middletown Food Pantry.
