Beach Home for the Holidays
Head to the Aaron Bessant Park in PCB to attend the annual Beach Home for the Holidays beginning in November to make s’mores around the campfire, meet other people in the community, sing Christmas carols, listen to live music, and have some sweet treats. After the event, you can watch the Christmas tree light up and listen to the Christmas Carolers and Restless Heart band onstage. End the night with exciting fireworks that make the sky change color!
Have Brekky at Dave and Buster’s
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? So, why not have breakfast at a fun spot that your kids are going to love? This way, everyone can stay entertained and happy! Head to Dave and Buster’s on Hilton Jr. Drive in PCB to have breakfast with Santa Claus on December 3rd from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Grab a special package for breakfast and a game card so you can save money in the process!
Christmas at the Barn
Not everyone is visiting PCB with kids. In that case, you can skip Dave and Buster’s and head to Christmas at the Barn on December 3rd from 6 to 9 p.m. to listen to a live jazz band, sip on some carefully crafted and strong cocktails, and test your swing dancing skills on the large dance floor!
Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony
Last but not least, one of the biggest events to attend during your Christmas in Panama City Beach is the tree lighting ceremony. Head to 16200 Panama City Beach Parkway to donate some gently used toys, dress in your best sweater, and watch the annual Christmas tree lighting with your family.
