The Apalachicola Christmas Celebration will light up Apalachicola from 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 23. The streets will be lined with luminaries and filled with holiday spirit. Merchants will be open late and the sounds of carolers will echo through the streets filling the evening with the Christmas spirit.

Santa arrives on a shrimp boat at 4 p.m. at the City Dock on Water Street. He will hear children’s Christmas wishes and carolers will sing. The Orman House Museum will be trimmed in holiday finery and docents dressed in period costumes lead visitors through the early history of Franklin County. The Raney House Museum will also be decorated in holiday greenery and open for tours. Join us for an old-fashioned Christmas celebration!
