Carrabelle's Holiday on the Harbor

ie hope you will join us for what has become a favorite Christmas event not only for the Carrabelle community, but for much of the Forgotten Coast. Enjoy some music while doing some holiday shopping with our downtown merchants and festival vendors from 11 am-6 pm. Munch on some treats and visit your favorite local restaurant or have dinner with one of our vendors. Lots of fun things for the children to see and do, including a visit with Santa! At dark-30, watch the Boat Parade of Lights along the Carrabelle River from your favorite viewing spot with a Fireworks Show Finale. 

For information about being a vendor, information for vessels, or about general activities: Call the Chamber @ (850) 697-2585 or email  To register your entry online for the Boat Parade of Lights, click on the website link on the left, complete info, and submit.

This event is hosted by the Carrabelle Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Carrabelle CRA. Partially funded by the Franklin County TDC.
