Holiday Activities on the Bayfront Peninsula
A series of free activities is held each year in Port Lavaca to bring holiday cheer to the community and visitors. Holiday events kick off with the tree lighting ceremony at Bayfront Peninsula Park sponsored by the City of Port Lavaca, with help from the Port Lavaca Chamber of Commerce.
While those in attendance listen to Christmas music, tell Santa if they have been a good girl or boy, sip hot chocolate and roast marshmallows over three fire pits to make S'mores, others can enjoy the ice skating rink or a life sized snow globe in which attendees may be photographed.
The holiday celebration continues with a lighted Christmas parade.
The route begins on Virginia Street at Sam Faubion Drive then continues down Virginia before turning onto Main Street where it continues until it stops at the Bayfront Peninsula Park pavilion.
Santa will ride in a local fire engine while schools, businesses and organizations participate in the parade.
