New Smyrna Beach is a charming beachside town, rich in history and full of wonderful attractions and events throughout the year. However, the holidays in New Smyrna Beach become even more special. It is a simply magical time of year.
Of course, who could be without Santa at Christmastime? No worries, there are Santa appearances throughout December in Christmas Park. If you enjoy Christmas performances, The Little Theatre in New Smyrna Beach is the place to be. There are live performances of a variety of holiday shows throughout the season.
New Smyrna Beach is also well known for its festive spirit and proves its point with its holiday parade tradition. The streets are filled with marching bands, dance troupes, horses and floats decorated for the holidays during the traditional New Smyrna Beach Christmas Parade. If that wasn’t enough, boats glide through the waterways adorned with Christmas lights and decorated for the season during our Christmas Boat Parade. In addition, there holiday tours throughout the historic district.
New Smyrna Beach holiday visitors can also enjoy our annual “Lighting up Flagler” event. Thousands of sparkling lights will illuminate Flagler Avenue, and visitors can enjoy beautiful storefront decorations, strolling carolers, holiday refreshments, live performances and special holiday discounts and sales. “Last Night, First Day at the Beach” is crammed with a series of fun events from the day after Christmas until the first of the year. Choose from a citywide music festival, sidewalk sales, fireworks and more. Then guests can take in the New Year’s Eve Fireworks on Flagler, followed by celebrations at eight different locations.
