Pocomoke City – 5 December 2012 – Mayor Bruce Morrison and his wife, Laura, have introduced a new tradition this year to add to the growing list of Christmas festivities in Pocomoke: Christmas river cruises.  It is their intention to capitalize on the area’s greatest asset, the Pocomoke River.  The effort began when they requested the owners of riverfront properties participate by decorating their home for the holidays.

 Bay Queen Cruises will take guests on an evening tour of these homes, via the Pocomoke River.  Cruises require advance reservations and occur at 7:00pm on Thursdays and Fridays throughout December, beginning December 6.  Captain John Riggi and First Mate Mary Ann take guests on a 40-minute tour that includes live Christmas music and hot cocoa along the way. The cost is $10 per person.  Reservations are required and can be made by calling: 443-437-7235 or 410-632-1415.

On Saturdays throughout December, Santa Claus will visit with children from 11:00am – 1:00pm in his cabin downtown.  Our Santa house sits in the new downtown mini-park, at the corner of Market & Second Streets.  There is no charge.  The Junior Women’s Club of Pocomoke will be offering a picture with Santa for $5.00. 

Folks are encouraged to cross the street to A Second Time Around (125 Market Street), vintage and collectibles shop, for some special treats.
