It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Beaufort and the much anticipated holiday weekend in downtown is coming this weekend upon us with three consecutive days of festive fun on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

First off is the community Christmas celebration at the annual Night on the Town, taking place on Friday evening. A long standing tradition here in Beaufort, A Night on the Town is filled with holiday entertainment on a closed off Bay Street. Enjoy live music, carolers, puppet shows, dancers, choral performances, a holiday performance by the Parris Island Marine Band…and lots of good cheer. It's basically a huge Christmas street party. Event starts at 6pm.

Capping off Friday evening is the lighting of the City of Beaufort’s Christmas tree and a visit by Santa himself.

Saturday brings something very special to downtown. The annual Christmas Boat Parade brings dozens of beautifully decorated boats passing by in a parade of inventive Christmas decorations and twinkling lights.

A marvel to witness, the Christmas Boat Parade is one of the things that makes the holidays so special here in the Lowcountry. Event starts around 5pm.

Then, on Sunday, half of Beaufort turns out to enjoy the annual Beaufort Christmas Parade as it makes its way through the streets of historic downtown Beaufort at 3pm. Come see the holiday-themed floats, marching bands, fire trucks...and even a visit from Santa himself.

The holidays in Beaufort are amazing, and it's events like these that help make them so special.
