Visits with Santa in downtown Carrabelle
December 14 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Carrabelle History Museum is sponsoring a wonderful, free “Visit with Santa” event during Carrabelle’s Holiday on the Harbor celebration on Saturday, December 14. Santa and his head Carrabelle elf will ride around the town on top of the City of Carrabelle Fire Truck, spreading cheer to the many children who run outside to see him go by. Santa will then make his big arrival on the fire truck in downtown Carrabelle at 2:00 pm. Children are welcome to visit with Santa and his elves at his big chair in front of the White Kitchen at the corner of Avenue B and Marine Street between 2:00-4:00 pm & 5:00-7:00 pm. This wonderful visit and photo op are provided free to all families. A professional photographer from Karilyn Photography will be there to capture the special memory at no charge and photos will be posted for free downloading to the Carrabelle History Museum’s Facebook page. Families are welcome to bring their own camera as well. Additionally each child will be given a candy cane and a free age-appropriate book from Bring Me a Book Franklin. While there, the whole family can enjoy a free tour of the Carrabelle History Museum decked out in holiday decorations from 10 am – 5 pm. This event is open to the public.
While in downtown Carrabelle, be sure to experience the rest of the Holiday on the Harbor festivities, which begin at 11 am and are presented by the Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce including FREE mini-train rides for children from 3-6 pm. Guests can enjoy complimentary hot cocoa, cider, coffee and pastries from several community church booths. Make sure to stay to see the highlight of the festival, the traditional Christmas Boat Parade of Lights and fireworks in the evening.
