Whether you’re looking for plays or parades, there’s something in driving distance that’ll help you embrace the spirit of the season!

South Walton’s Turn on the Town

Saturday, November 25th, the Seaside Amphitheater hosts Turn on the Town. Going far beyond the typical lighting of a Christmas tree, Seaside prepares to light up the city with festive lights! The event begins with a parade at 4, with other festivities beginning at 5. If you want a dramatic start to the Holiday season, this is it!

Every Christmas Story Ever Told

Ever feel like Christmas stories seem to run together with their themes? Interested in a new take on some old classics? Come watch three actors from Seaside Repertory Theatre pull out all the stops in Every Christmas Story Ever Told, and enjoy some holiday satire! The fifty-minute play is sure to have you laughing at new twists on classic favorites. Best of all, the performance is free—one is happening on Tuesday, November 21st in Rosemary Beach, another that Friday at NatureWalk in Seagrove, another on Saturday, November 25th at Alys’ Beach’s Amphitheater, and another later that day at the Seaside Post Office during Turn on the Town!
