The Most Wonderful Time of the Year on the Secret Coast
The holidays in Mississippi are like no other, where you can catch a glimpse of Santa coming to town by boat or sleigh. There are festivities to enjoy up and down the Coast with Elliott Homes communities close to all. Cities up and down the Coast, from Pascagoula to Diamondhead, MS, kick holiday fun up another notch every year. Of course, as your hometown homebuilder, Elliott Homes celebrates too.
Our Favorite Things to Do on the Mississippi Gulf Coast
The Annual Gulfport Harbor Lights Winter Festival – Our favorite Christmas event was showcased in a Lifetime TV Movie, “Christmas in Mississippi!” This phenomenal light show was awarded the top honors as the “Most Magical Show in Mississippi” by OnlyInYourState.com! Located on the Gulfport waterfront in Jones Park, prepare to be amazed by more than one million lights. Sip a delicious hot chocolate with marshmallows while you stroll through the park or board a heated trolley. Meet the man in red in Santa’s Village or have photos taken at an Elfie Selfie station. Enjoy rides on Santa’s Big Wheel, the Merry-Go-Round, The Santa Express Tour Train and more!
The Annual Christmas on the Water Boat Parade – Everyone loves a parade, and we have an extra special one on the Coast! Boats are decorated in their holiday glory and sail across the water for all to see. After the parade, the fun continues with a spectacular firework show!
Annual Christmas on the Bayou – Enjoy the fantastic sights of this lighted boat parade from bleacher seats or one of the beautiful waterfront restaurants nearby. Not only are the boats decorated with holiday finery, but waterfront homes also compete to receive the Parade Captain’s Best House on the Bayou.
Annual Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon – A Coastal Running Fest showcases our local culture with a beautiful beachside run from Pass Christian to Biloxi. The weekend event also includes the Chevron Mississippi Gulf Coast Kids 1-mile Marathon. Other races continue for those seeking a healthy tour of the Coast.
Keeping you “IN THE KNOW” on the Mississippi Gulf Coast
Of all the celestial events that occur throughout the year, the Geminid meteor shower is not to be missed. It’s touted as one of the “best and most reliable” annual meteor showers.
In conclusion, the Mississippi Gulf Coast holidays are magical whether you have children or want to feel like a kid again. There are many more fabulous things to do, all close to our communities, where Elliott Homes is Creating a Place Where Life Gets Better.
