The Christmas tree lighting is normally scheduled for the Thursday after Thanksgiving, this year it will be November 29, 2018, and begins at 7 pm.
We will have live caroling provided by local school children, light refreshments, and of course, a visit from Santa himself. We invite children of all ages to attend and enjoy an annual Surfside Beach holiday tradition.
In 2016, Hurricane Matthew had uprooted the large pine tree in front of the Town Hall that was normally decorated for the holidays, and it had to be removed. Rather than cancel the event, the public works department quickly replaced the fallen pine with a palm tree. The event went off as planned, as the tree lighting was saved. The temporary palm tree has since been replaced by a new pine tree.
If you’re a transplant to our shores, why not join us and create a new holiday tradition in your new home? The holidays are a great time to make new friends and re-connect with current ones. Everyone is welcome to celebrate in Surfside Beach.
