2011 Beachy Keen Holiday Events
Posted by Jody on November 14, 2011
Santa is so busy this time of year that we just can’t keep up with him! We hope you’ll join us in finding more beachy keen Holiday Events so that we can all celebrate the holidays at the beach, amusement pier or historic lighthouse.
This Jolly Old Elf really seems to be a Jack-of-All-Trades. Does Santa Claus jet ski, para sail, kayak or paddle board onto your town’s sandy beachfront? Or maybe Kris Kringle will water ski or pilot a seaplane along your city’s coastline? Will your town be celebrating with a lighted holiday boat parade? Curious minds want to know!
We’re hoping to gather many, many free beachy keen Holiday Events. We’d like to post them on Beach Treasures And Treasure Beaches.com and on our Facebook page, too. You might even want to submit a Guest Post about a free Holiday Beach Event in your area (Go ahead and click the Submissions tab at the top of the page for details and guidelines.) In the meantime, we’ve got a pretty good starter set compiled for you:
Santa’s Annual Boat Trip, East Providence, Rhode Island: “Pomham Santa is scheduled to make his annual boat trip along the East Providence (Riverside) shoreline on Saturday, November 26, 2011. For the past four years, Santa has visited the area by boat to wave to children and adults along the shoreline. He can also be seen on the East Bay Bike Path when he visits “Lighthouse Cove” and Pomham Rocks Lighthouse in Riverside.” (Reporter Today/More Info)

2011 Holiday Boat Parades, Florida: Florida has an entire website dedicated to Holiday Boat Parades! Will you be in the Florida Keys, Cocoa Beach or Pensacola this holiday season? I counted 59 cities with events at Florida by Water.com. This really is a jolly site!
McDonald’s Holiday Lights at the Beach, Virginia Beach, Virginia: “Festive fish, jumping dolphins, frolicking porpoises – all in bright, colored lights against the clear night-time sky, are the stars of McDonald’s Holiday Lights at the Beach, a nautical and holiday-themed light display at the Virginia Beach oceanfront!” (Visit Virginia Beach.com/More Info) November 18, 2011 – January 1, 2012
We wish you a joyous, fun filled holiday season!
