People walking along the Bayfront and enjoying the view on a beautiful day in St. Augustine.


Since the first mass of Thanksgiving with Pedro Menéndez de Avilés on September 8, 1565, St. Augustine welcomes the holidays with fireworks, parties, and elaborate displays. We review the Night of Lights, the New Year's Eve celebration at St. Augustine Beach, the Easter Parade, and other exciting events. We mention specialty tours and provide an overview of the history of each celebration. The information in each article is just in time for the holidays so that you can plan ahead and make it a season to be jolly.
