As much as the world has changed following the pandemic and lockdowns, some things have remained very much the same. The holiday season is a reminder of this strange condition we find ourselves in. On the one hand, the holiday season is well underway, with new standards being established in retail outlets and restaurants to help make the season bright. On the other many events have been canceled and our plans are left a bit in limbo. We’re not just a business in the Lowcountry we live here. You’re our neighbors and we wanted to help you with this coming season by showing you some of the holiday magic in Charleston you can still enjoy.

The Holiday Festival of Lights

James Island County Park plays host to this Lowcountry tradition of fabulous light displays sponsored by local businesses. The beloved tradition combines holiday music with spectacular holiday light displays. This being a unique year for the event, the experience has been tailored to provide you all of the enjoyment from the safety of your own vehicle including concessions. Admission is charged by car and can be paid in advance or at the gate. A favorite attraction for many in the area, if you’ve never been this should be the year you change that.

The Holiday Parade of Boats

This incredibly unique parade takes place in Charleston Harbor. Boat owners from all over the area decorate their boats for the season and parade to the delight of spectators on the shore. The event itself is free and visible from multiple areas. Though you should make note that some of the viewing areas charge admission.

Christmas on the Battery

This very special event occurs at the historic Edmonston-Alston house. An evening of holiday magic, exceptional decorations, Christmas carols, and holiday stories from the Gullah tradition, the ticketed event will comply with CDC guidelines this year. Combine the history of Charleston with the majesty of the season at this incredible event.
