Santa’s Arrival & Tree Lighting 2019

A parade, pictures, fireworks, and holiday cheer galore!

The most magical time of the year is upon us and Destin Commons is ready to kick off the fun! On Friday, November 22nd, Old Saint Nick himself will be arriving at Destin Commons for our annual Santa’s Arrival & Tree Lighting.

The fun begins at 6:00 PM where guests can take advantage of all the activities and fun that only Destin Commons can bring you. Destin Commons welcomes you with festive holiday music as soon as you enter the center just to make sure you are in the holiday spirit. Is there anything better than Bing Crosby, Elvis, and Burl Ives belting out Christmas classics?

Kids will love seeing Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at our 50 foot Christmas tree. Make sure you get pictures made with these lovable holiday characters. Or grab a family photo in front of our magnificent tree for a picture-perfect Christmas card.

Anyone can enjoy face painting, but the kids will especially love it! Get a snowflake, Santa, mistletoe, or ornaments painted on your family’s faces for added fun. Stop by the Kilwins booth for some delicious hot chocolate and don’t forget to have some fun over at the photo booth.

The parade starts at 7:00 PM so make sure you find a great place to watch as the decorated floats come by. Santa has decided to leave the reindeer at the North Pole and will be coming down Main Street is his very own Bass Pro Shops boat instead! He will be stopping to help us light up our holiday showpiece along his route. We will top off the evening with a sensational holiday fireworks display that you do not want to miss.

After the fireworks, journey down to Bass Pro Shops where the little ones will find Santa ready to listen to all their Christmas wishes! There they can also enjoy free crafts and games at Santa’s Wonderland.
