Businesses are decorating their stores with twinkling lights, families are putting up their trees, and the staff here at Anchor Vacations eagerly awaits the arrival of our out-of-town guests. Trust us when we say, Gulf Shores truly knows how to celebrate the holidays. Experience the Christmas magic yourself by visiting the Gulf Shores’ Annual Christmas Parade & Holiday Celebration!

The Christmas Parade

Forget about searching Christmas parade “near me,” since all of our vacation rentals are located near this holiday celebration. Once you arrive, you’ll quickly notice large crowds of festive guests, many dressed as Santa, forming lines from Gulf Shores Public Beach to Sims Park. This means the Christmas parade is about to begin! You’ll catch festively-lit floats carrying notable holiday characters and marching bands down Highway 59. When the Christmas parade ends, the holiday celebration continues in Sims Park. Here, you can enjoy visits with Santa, holiday snacks, and festive arts and crafts.

To conclude your Gulf Shores Holiday Celebration, participate in the annual snowball drop. Over 4,000 ping pong balls will drop over Santa’s head to simulate a blizzard, but one snowball is different than the rest. Whoever finds the lucky snowball, wins a prize!
