Christmas Lighted Boat Parade

The Christmas Lighted Boat Parade is back! The perfect way to ‘light it up’ this holiday season, and a fun event for the whole family. Scheduled for December 10, starting at 6pm, this event is free to attend. We suggest you stop by Driftwood Cafe and pick up some beer, wine, sandwiches, or treats to enjoy while you watch the outrageously decorated boats pass by!

Putt The Pier – Holiday Edition

December 16-18, bring the whole family out for Putt The Pier – Holiday Edition. Holiday-themed obstacles, classic holiday tunes, and 360-degree water views make this a unique holiday event you won’t find anywhere else. What’s even better, the golf balls used are made of biodegradable materials, just in case your putt plops into the water.
