Seaside, Florida recently named one of the best holiday towns by Coastal Living is magical during the holidays. A home town beach vibe, combined with a holiday parade, outdoor holiday movie, and the annual holiday lighting of the town is the perfect kick-off to the holiday season in Seaside.
The parade begins at 9:00 am in Seagrove Beach and proceeds west to the town of Seaside. At 5pm in the Seaside amphitheater, there is the annual "Turn on The Town" tree and town holiday lighting ceremonies where Santa Clause asks all the kids to the stage to sing the countdown to Turn on the Town. After this, there are pictures with Santa Claus on the stage by the holiday tree.
