Holiday Card Photo Op with Santa

September 4, 2016

santa's sleigh 12During Santa’s routes throughout the City of Manhattan Beach last holiday season, numerous parents asked if Santa could be available earlier in the year to take photos which families could use for their annual holiday cards.

So….by popular request, Santa and his Elves will make a stationary appearance for Photo Ops on September 4 in Polliwog Park at the City of Manhattan Beach Summer Concerts in the Park series during the much anticipated finale event.

Santa and the Santa Float will appear before and during the concert to enable families to get their pictures with Santa far enough in advance to be used in their family holiday cards. Those wishing to take a picture with Santa should bring their own camera.

Santa’s local Manhattan Beach website has been updated with information at Be sure to check back often for Santa updates. The Santa tracker available at that site will be live during the event so you can see where Santa and the Elves are located.

Santa and the Elves also have a local Facebook page where you can go for updates at Please like the page and follow for future Santa in Manhattan Beach updates!

The Float will be positioned next to the children’s playground, in direct line of sight from the concert venue. Santa and the Santa Float will be on site from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

The concert, featuring the world renowned Beatles tribute band Britain’s Finest will run from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Britain’s Finest is one of the most authentic Beatles tribute bands to emerge in the last 20 years.

Special thanks to Kiwanis of Manhattan Beach, the City of Manhattan Beach, the Manhattan Beach Department of Parks and Recreation (including Mark Leyman, Keith Darling and the guys at the yard), and to the entire army of Santa’s Elves and helpers.

Ho, ho, ho!
