Residents are invited to ring in the holiday season at the annual Light Up the Night Christmas tree lighting in downtown Fort Walton Beach on Friday, November 24.

  • The event, hosted by the City of Fort Walton Beach, will take place at 5 p.m. at the Fort Walton Beach Landing located at 139 Brooks Street Southeast. 

The evening will feature the lighting of the Landing’s Christmas tree and downtown holiday lights for the first time this season.

Festivities include live Christmas tunes performed by members of the Fort Walton Beach Community Chorus, and an appearance by Santa Claus.

  • At 5:30 p.m., the city will flip the switch to illuminate the downtown lights and the Christmas tree, offically welcoming the holiday season to Fort Walton Beach.

The Light Up the Night ceremony has become a cherished way for locals to come together and usher in the Christmas season. The event is free and open to the public. City officials encourage community members to arrive early to get a good spot for the lighting ceremony.
