Don’t be a Grinch! Costumes are encouraged to get in the holiday spirit! We’ll sleigh you there!

Check back for more naughty and nice surprises as we get closer to the event!


Charity Info:

Motorcycle Santa started in 2015 as an impromptu idea to spread some holiday cheer. An Amazon prime delivery of a Santa suit, large red velvet bag, and an elf costume, in addition to a full tank of gas on a 2003 Kawasaki Vulcan, brought instant life to this unscripted holiday scheme. Motorcycle Santa and his small crew proceeded to ride around various areas in the Wilmington, DE area, handing out an assortment of gifts to unsuspecting strangers. The festive gesture created countless smiles, and ultimately drew support from the local community rolling into the following year.
