Gulf Shores Christmas Lighted Parades
What could be better than a lighted Gulf Shores Christmas parade? In early December, Gulf Shores puts on their Lighted Christmas Parade & Lighting of the Beach, featuring lighted floats, marching bands and holiday characters, holiday treats, pictures with Santa, and a coastal style snowball drop with 4,000+ ping pong balls!
For a coastal twist, there’s the Christmas Lighted Boat Parade on December 14th. Festive lighted boats sail from LuLu’s, coast down the Intracoastal Waterway pass The Wharf, ending in Orange Beach. Watch the parade at The Wharf in Orange Beach or LuLu’s in Gulf Shores.
Ask our staff about rentals close to Gulf Shores Park, LuLu’s, or along the parade routes. Put on some carols and watch the lighted boats pass right by your rental!
Santa and More
If it’s not Christmas without The Nutcracker, don’t worry. The Coastal Ballet Academy will present The Nutcracker on Sunday, December 8th. Check their website for times, and ticket prices.
Take the skaters in the family to The Wharf in Orange Beach from November 17 to mid-January for ice skating. And kids can get their pictures taken with Santa from November 17th to December 24th while you finish any last-minute shopping.
Gulf Shores will host their annual Breakfast with Santa on December 21st, starting at 8am. Admission for breakfast with Santa is $5, and kids 3 and under are free. The first 50 kids get a free picture with Santa!
Take the family to the nearby Flora-Bama and watch as Santa sky-dives onto the beach in front of this famous honky-tonk! Kids of all ages can sit on his lap for pictures, and there will be activities, hot chocolate and free sweets for the kids.
Enjoy the Beach
The weather will be great; temperatures are quite comfortably in the 60s during the day and a brisk 40s at night. It can be a little chilly for swimming unless you’re practicing for a Polar Bear plunge, but everyone can enjoy a dolphin cruise, beach volleyball game, or walking the beach looking for the perfect sand dollar. With one of our beachfront rentals, you can watch the kids play on the beach and dolphins frolic in the surf while you’re enjoying that first cup of coffee.
