For the best view, though, you'll want to grab a spot on Independence Seaport Museum's second floor terrace, overlooking the river.

Admission is $17 for adults, $12 for children, students, seniors and military.

Families are invited to spend the whole day at the museum, enjoying festive activities leading up to the boat parade.

There will be arts & crafts, including an opportunity to decorate gingerbread boats, and a visit from Santa Claus, who will pose for photos at 2 p.m.
