Find Your Cheer at These Virginia Beach Holiday Events

The winter season arrives quickly. It's time to get into the festive spirit with fun Virginia Beach holiday events. With some events in or near the city, you can enjoy all the season has to offer. Best of all, many are located within driving distance of our apartments in Virginia Beach, giving you fast access to joyful experiences.

WinterFest on the Wisconsin

Numerous nights make up WinterFest on the Wisconsin in Downtown Norfolk. You can enjoy the amazing light display at this waterfront festival. More than 650,000 lights decorate the venue. Live entertainment, "holiday beverages and bites," and a lighted boat parade are just a few of the fun offerings. You can book your weekend experience anytime between the middle of November and the beginning of January. The event opens on Veterans Day and encourages veterans to attend, free of charge. 

Holiday Parade at the Beach

Lighted floats, marching bands, dance groups, fire trucks, and more make their way through the crowd at this event. The Holiday Parade at the Beach takes place on December 4th. It runs down Atlantic Avenue, from 15th to 25th. More than 80 parade units make up the show, giving you plenty to watch and enjoy for a while. Be there well before the show starts at 5:30 p.m. to get a good watching spot!

Racing through a parade of lights can help make your holiday season bright and fun. Join the Surf-N-Santa 5 Miler hosted by BayPort Credit Union. Racers run down the Virginia Beach Boardwalk on December 18th. After that, attend the post-race party. Be sure to register in advance.

When there aren't festive holiday events in Virginia Beach going on, you can still find plenty to do around the city. Visit the many chocolate shops close to our apartments near Tidewater Community College. You can buy some for yourself or get them as delectable gifts for the holidays.
