The parade begins at 9:00am in Seagrove Beach and proceeds west to the town of Seaside. Meet Santa after the parade. At 5pm it's party time in the amphitheater with holiday festivities and of course pictures with the jolly bearded one. Soon, the master of ceremonies asks all the kids to the stage to sing to the crowd of smiling faces, and after jingle bells, the count down begins in unison to "Turn on the Town".
