Turn on the Town: Saturday, November 27, 2010 4PM
30A & Seaside Amphitheater
Combine the small-town atmosphere of a beach community parade, throw in a dash of Santa Claus, and mix with the official lighting of a remarkable town on Florida’s Emerald Coast, and you have the perfect makings to kick off the Holiday season in beautiful Seaside. The parade begins at 4pm in Seagrove Beach and proceeds west to the town of Seaside. Once Santa arrives on the back of the vintage fire truck, it’s party time in the amphitheater with holiday festivities and of course pictures with the jolly-bearded one. Soon, the master of ceremonies, along with Mrs. Claus, asks all the kids to the stage to sing to the crowd of smiling faces, and after a few versus of jingle bells, the count down begins in unison to “Turn on the Town.”
