Sparkling Wine and Holiday Lights

In mid-November, you’re welcome to get a jump-start on your holiday season with the Sparkling Wine and Holiday Lights festival. It takes place in the Village of Baytowne Wharf, just west of Scenic 30A. Take a stroll down the street to find stunning holiday decorations, several varieties of champagne, and plenty of tasty foods. At the end of the night, you’re invited to gather for the Christmas tree lighting and a light show. There’s no better way to get in the holiday spirit!

The Merry Little Christmas Concert

On the first Saturday of December, make your way to the South Walton Lawn for holiday tunes and gourmet hors-d'oeuvres. Grab a seat and settle in as local musicians perform your favorite seasonal songs for the Merry Little Christmas Concert. You can even try your luck in the silent auction for a chance to take home some impressive prizes. Tickets are $50 and support the Boys and Girls Club of the Emerald Coast.

Cafe Thirty-A Charity Christmas Ball

Another fantastic way to celebrate the holidays while supporting a good cause is by attending the Cafe Thirty-A Charity Christmas Ball. The first Friday of December brings dancing, delicious food, and live music to one of our favorite Seaside restaurants. And, you’re invited! Treat yourself to a mouthwatering buffet, capture memories in the photo booth, and dance the night away with your special someone. After an evening of entertainment, the proceeds go toward Caring and Sharing of South Walton!

Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!)

Each winter, we look forward to a delightful tradition brought to us by the Seaside Repertory Theatre. If it’s not part of your holiday plans yet, it should be! From the end of November through December, you can catch a must-see performance entitled Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some). Several well-known Christmas tales come together in this play, and the talented actors of The Rep make it their own with hilarious antics. They even add a unique flair to it each year, so it’s always fresh. Bring the family and get ready for an evening full of laughs!
