I'm Dreaming of a Beach Christmas!


Coastal Christmas Events

We have put together this list of Coastal Christmas Events, all located in beach areas, and many of which include seaside themes or activities. If you love a Christmas Light Boat Parade, or seeing Santa arrive in the harbor by boat is on your seasonal to-do list, then you need to take a look through these festivities. You're sure to find something special to kick off your holiday season!




The spectacular Gulfport Harbor Lights Winter Festival begins the last week in November and continues throughout December in Jones Park. You can choose to view the light show either as a walking tour or aboard a free heated trolley. In addition to the light show with over a million lights, the festival includes live music, Santa's Village, and food vendors. And in keeping with its coastal location, the light show also includes a nautical theme along with the traditional Christmas theme.
