The Town of North Beach kicks off the festive holiday season by Lighting Up the Town on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 7 pm! Onlookers gather on the pavilion as we flip the switch to light up the town Christmas tree and holiday displays. This year, we are excited to add something new to our Christmas festivities! The NORTH BEACH CHRISTMAS MARKET will be on Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 10 am to 3 pm on 5th Street near the boardwalk. The Annual Pat Carpenter Holiday Parade is the same day beginning at noon. This festive parade draws spectators from afar! The boardwalk is lined with hundreds of people viewing the parade. The best part is when the jolly-old-fat man arrives by fire truck! Santa and Mrs. Claus visit with children and give them a special treat. Tell the kids to bring their wish list to share with Santa! Warm up around the campfire as you roast marshmallows!
