The Holiday Season is here with all of the colors, lights, music and decorations that continuously remind us of the upcoming holidays. December in Charleston is packed full of seasonal events to help us celebrate too. Here are a some of the fun holiday events, theatre and sports throughout December:

Events: Christmas lights are found all over town this month, but none can compare to the Holiday Festival of Lights at the James Island County Park and can be seen every day this month. This is not your average holiday light display either! It features 700 displays of over 2 million lights to make it one of the most recognized holiday celebrations in the country.

Christmas parades and festivals are always a fun way to celebrate the holidays. Be sure to see the North Charleston Parade and Festival on Dec. 6th, the City of Charleston’s 34th Annual Holiday Parade on Dec. 7th, the Holiday Parade of Boats on Dec. 13th, and the Mt. Pleasant Christmas Light Parade on Dec. 14th.

There are several New Year’s Eve celebrations going on around Charleston on the 31st, so be sure to look at the complete list below for many more exciting events this month.

Music & Theatre: Most of the music and theatre events this month focus on the holidays. The Nutcracker Ballet is always a holiday favorite and this December Charleston has two options of this classic performed by the Columbia City Ballet and the Moscow Ballet.  You can also see “A Christmas Carol” which will be performed on multiple dates between the 5th and 21st of December.
