Gulf Breeze Holiday Celebration

In partnership with the City of Gulf Breeze Parks & Recreation Dept, we are pleased to kick off the holiday season at the Gulf Breeze Holiday Celebration! We will continue our annual tradition of Santa Claus making his appearance in style on the Gulf Breeze Fire Department ladder truck and hosting displays of stationary floats and performances. This year, our tradition is going to be bigger than ever! Join us on December 4 for the 2021 Holiday Celebration with a fun theme: Merry Movies!

Participants are encouraged to show off their favorite holiday movie in creative floats, delightful costumes, and dazzling decorative displays to help our community celebrate the season in the Gulf Breeze city light celebration! Pass out goodies to families as they slowly cruise through this wonderful array of holiday fun!

Families are encouraged to cruise through this dazzling display on Saturday, Dec. 4 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. We ask all vehicles to bring an unwrapped toy to donate to the Optimist Club's Toys for Tots drive.
