Mr. and Mrs. Claus love to vacation on the Gulf Coast and, on December 1, 2012, they’ll be enjoying their annual visit to the Forgotten Coast. Come on out for Christmas on the Coast and help welcome them back to Port St. Joe, Florida!
Christmas on the Coast is a full day of fun in downtown Port St. Joe. Kick off your day at the SaltAir Farmer’s Market. Not only will you find fresh, local produce, but a selection of homemade holiday items, including ornaments and crafts, that will make the perfect souvenir or gift. There will even be facepainting for the kids! Save room for lunch while shopping all the delicious items at the market because, at noon, the annual Junior Service League Chili Cookoff begins. Not only will you want to hang out and taste as much as you can, but also enjoy the ponie rides and live music.
In the evening, you guessed it, Santa will arrive in style with a parade through town, tree lighting and much more family fun. Reserve your vacation rental on the Forgotten Coast and help is welcome the big man in red this weekend!
