Don’t care for snow? Ditch the snow this holiday season and spend Thanksgiving on the beach in Panama City Beach, Florida.
This year, Nov. 25–26, the city hosts its seventh annual event at Aaron Bessant Park. Since the event takes place Friday and Saturday, you still have time for turkey on Thursday, allowing you to dedicate the rest of the weekend to fun in the sun.
The event kicks off the festive season with Christmas carols, a Santa’s Village full of vendors, a tree-lighting ceremony and a visit or two from Santa himself. The event also offers plenty of non-holiday ways to have fun, with s’mores on the beach and nightly fireworks. There will also be performances by country music star Cam and Panama City Symphony Orchestra.
“We are excited to invite families back to Panama City Beach for this highly anticipated annual holiday event,” said Dan Rowe, president and CEO, Visit Panama City Beach. “Beach Home for the Holidays is a great seasonal tradition for residents and visitors, and we look forward to hosting another memorable celebration with plenty of festive activities, talented musical performances and holiday cheer.”
