It’s the holiday season in Virginia Beach, and December is a great time to visit. The halls are decked, the lights are lit, and everything is ready for a month-long party. Virginia Beach offers a variety of activities to get you in the holiday spirit, and of course, everything has an oceanic twist and a little bit of sand.
- Holiday Lights at the Beach
Nothing evokes the holidays quite like giant light displays, and nothing says Virginia Beach like the oceanfront. The Holiday Lights at the Beach bring together the best of both and results in a bright, beautiful display that bursts with December cheer for more than 30 blocks. The lights display is open through January 1 where visitors can see giant blinking fish, crabs, Santa Clause, and so much more, right on the sand. This is a driving tour, which means you will not have to battle the wind or cold to enjoy this light display, and participants will be ushered right on to the boardwalk at 2nd Street. Each car is $15 and entrance fees must be paid in cash.
- Last Night on the Town
Last Night on the Town is Virginia Beach’s biggest New Year’s celebration. The party will begin at Pembroke Mall at 2 pm on New Year’s Eve. There will be family entertainment, a children’s New Years countdown, and balloon drop at 5 pm. Throughout the night the party will continue across the street at Town Center. There will be live music on multiple stages with headlining acts that include Smash Mouth, BJ Griffin & The Galaxy Groove, and Jesse Chang. There will also be fireworks, a laser light show, and the Virginia Beach Ball Drop at midnight. All of the entertainment is free, and food and adult beverages will be available for purchase.
- Santa’s Seaside Village
Through January 1, Santa will be at his seaside village on the Virginia Beach oceanfront. Enter a world of holiday magic and wonder, conveniently located on the corner of Atlantic and 30th street. Santa’s Seaside Village has carnival rides, a petting farm, and pony rides. There will also be snacks for purchase, festive decorations, and adorable holiday shopping. Walk through special animated displays, enjoy live entertainment and meet the big man himself (Santa Clause, of course)! The village will be open every weekend, Friday through Sunday, from 2pm to 9pm. Admission is $4 for everyone over the age of two, but special family 4-pack deals are available.
