Create new holiday traditions this year in Panama City Beach!

Thanksgiving Thursday may be the time for turkey, but that weekend, Santa Claus is coming to town! Beach Home for the Holidays waves goodbye to fall and sets the stage for the most magical month of the year. Aaron Bessant Park serves as the site of carol-themed concerts, s’mores, an appearance by Santa and activities for the kids. The main event is the annual Christmas tree lighting, illuminating the spirit of the season! Thank you to event host, the Panama City Beach CVB, and presenting sponsor, Southern Living®.
