1. The Annual A Night on the Town
It’s the opening of the Christmas/holiday shopping season and takes place on the first weekend of December. A long-standing tradition of the community, A Night on the Town is a mix of traditional and contemporary. An evening with a surprise around every corner and several things that will entertain, delight, and get you in the Holiday Spirit. Shops will stay open late to welcome regular and new customers with special treats and a preview of their large and unique selection of items for the Holidays to help get a head start of the holiday season.
The evening also includes the City of Beaufort’s tree lighting ceremony, entertainment by the Parris Island Marine Corps Band, choral performances, plenty of good cheer, and a rumored visit from Santa himself.
2. Light up the Night Holiday Boat Parade
Bring your chairs and blankets down to the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park for the Beaufort Lighted Boat Parade! Our locals take to the seas on their personal boats that are decorated in beautiful Christmas lights and other decorations. Boats will make three passes at the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park by the seawall.
