A Coastal Holiday

Be sure to stop by Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina for a coastal holiday display of lights and some great holiday shopping and dining.

Santa & Shopping Day

Friday, November 26, 2021

Who is ready for Santa’s first appearance on Hilton Head Island? We are! Join us for a day-after-Thanksgiving “Santa and Shopping Day” with specials and sales throughout the harbour shops and restaurants.

Santa will arrive at 12 noon aboard a fire truck and stay until 2:30 p.m. at the Neptune Statue for children to share their Christmas list and take photos!

Additional kids activities from 11 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. will include train rides along with holiday music. Bring the kids and grandkids to meet Santa, listen to holiday classics and shop for some special gifts! The first 250 kids will be given a gingerbread cookie to take home! 

Free event, but please bring a new unwrapped toy or canned items for the Deep Well Project.
