Apalachicola annual Christmas celebration Friday

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!

On Saturday, Nov. 25, at noon, the fun continues as Santa has a special day devoted to hearing wishes from his furry friends. Support the Franklin County Humane Society and have your pet’s picture taken with Santa for a donation. There will be a pet costume contest at 3 p.m., plus stocking stuffers for your non-furry friends.

Need holiday gifts? Saturday is also Small Business Saturday. Support local merchants and restaurants by spending your money in our quaint little town. You’ll find usual, one-of-a-kind gifts, art work, outstanding food and gift certificates for nearly everything.
