Winter is finally here, (although not a very cold one so far). Downtown is transforming itself in preparation for the kickoff to the Christmas season this weekend. Here is your social calendar for upcoming events.



See all your friends and neighbors at this Friday’s annual Night On The Town and watch the Christmas Tree in Freedom Park get lit at 8p.m.

On Saturday, December 4th, at 5:30 head to the Waterfront Park to watch the Light Up The Night Boat Parade. Boats are scheduled to be in Port Royal at 5:30 and by the Waterfront Park at 6.

On Sunday, Dec. 5th bring all the kids to the Christmas Parade downtown at 3 p.m.

And the following weekend, on Saturday Dec. 11th, get a thermos of hot chocolate and head to the park with your blanket and chairs for “It’s a Wonderful Life” Movie in the Park at 6 pm.

Big Thanks to LaNelle Fabian and Androula Weiland of Main St. Beaufort for helping all this fun stuff downtown to happen!
