Gulfport, MS, Nov. 30 – Dec. 30, 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
The Annual Gulfport Harbor Lights Winter Festival is a Christmastime favorite offering something for everyone in the whole family. Listen to the sounds of the season as you walk (or ride the free heated trolley) through the magical light show, with different live music performances every night. Take pictures with your favorite lit-up exhibits, at an “Elfie Selfie” station, or even with Santa Claus himself in Santa’s Village. Enjoy warm cups of hot chocolate with marshmallows and other yummy concessions. Get a bird’s eye view from the top of Santa’s Big Wheel, or take a spin on other rides, like the Merry Go Round Carousel or one of Santa’s trains. Located in Jones Park, this festival is open from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and runs for the entire month of December, excluding Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
