No matter which city you choose to vacation to along the Gulf of Mexico, each one hosts different events focused on family fun. For now, let’s take a look at three holiday events in Destin, FL.
Holiday on the Harbor: Santa’s Send Off
On December 18th from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, your family will have their last opportunity to take pictures with Santa Claus before his sendoff back to the North Pole! Your kids will have a moment to put in their last few gift requests and enjoy a Holiday celebration to prepare for Christmas Eve. Bring your camera and make sure to ask Santa if he has any cookie preferences.
12 Nights of Lights
Get in the Holiday spirit by visiting The Village of Baytowne Wharf and experiencing a spectacular light show. Every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday night in December, Baytowne Wharf hosts three light shows where the Event Plaza Lawn and Christmas Tree sparkle. The three shows are at the time, 6:00 PM, 7:00 PM, and 8:00 PM. The cost is free to the public but make sure to get there early to find parking and the perfect seat to watch the show! You may even want to arrive a few hours before the lights are turned on and grab a bite to eat.
