The holidays are always a favorite time of year for visitors and residents in PCB. With all of the exciting events, live music and fun-filled activities for families and kids of all ages, the memories to be made at the Real.Fun.Beach. are endless!

Start the Christmas season off on the right “foot” and check out the Panama City Beach Marathon, held at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville on December 2nd. Don’t forget to fuel the body and the mind before you attend, head over to Dave & Buster’s for Breakfast with Santa that morning from 8:30am-11am.

Mark your calendars for just a few days later and be sure to attend the first ever An Emerald Coast Christmas, held at Aaron Bessant Park from December 8-10. The weekend festival will feature a full food court, an extensive vendor village, a Living Nativity and petting zoo, children’s corner and so much more!

Bring the kids out on December 9th to watch the colorful and joyful Optimist Club Christmas Parade at Pier Park where the floats and the holiday music will be sure to get you in the spirit!
