The Christmas spirit returns to Calabash again on December 6th with a parade ending in a beautiful tree lighting ceremony. Residents of the area will join together and decorate golf carts, bikes, and other vehicles for the Spirit of Christmas Parade. The parade will start at Carter Drive and proceed down Beach Drive ending at River Road.
Grab your blankets and chairs at 6pm and gather in the Callahan’s parking lot to get the best view of the parade and await the 18th annual tree lighting ceremony. Candles will be distributed for participants. There will be hot cocoa and cooking for the crowd and Santa will arrive–but not in his usual sled–this time in a Calabash Fire Truck!
In tradition with the Spirit of Calabash, organizers encourage those who wish to bring donations to do so. Gifts for toys and clothing will be donated and non-perishable food items will be donated to Brunswick Family Assistance.
