Named by USA Today as one of the 10 Best Santa Sightings, the jolly old man will be making his grand entrance wearing his trademark board shorts and Hawaiian shirt. But don’t expect him to arrive in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. The SoCal version of Santa Claus will be flying in to Seaport Village by Seaplane at 1PM, November 28.
