What exactly makes the Coastal Bend so enchanting during the holiday season? What we lack in snow-blanketed pine trees and ice-related activities, we make up for in community events and joyous spirit.

Grandiose light displays brighten up the streets; neighborhood gatherings turn into annual traditions; community theatres bring seasonal offerings to the stage; local makers produce one-of-a-kind items perfect for gifting. 

We’re here to help you make the most out of this merry season. In this guide, we share an ode to the local holiday titans who established two of the most iconic Coastal Bend holiday traditions, a list of events and attractions and everything in between.
