We’d like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year this year. If you’re on Hilton Head Island, or planning to be, following are some of the Christmas events going on in celebration of this time of year. Be sure to get out and about and take in the festivities!
Dove Street Festival of Lights at Shelter Cove Towne Centre
A Hilton Head Island holiday tradition for over 20 years, has found a new home at Shelter Cove Towne Center! With the blessing of founders (and Dove Street residents!) Paul & Kristi Beckler and Rob Lolik, visitors from across the region can experience the cascading and tastefully tacky Hilton Head Christmas lights display. The 2015 season will add the new Shelter Cove Community Park to the amazing display of over 70,000 lights! Come out and enjoy this free, nightly holiday entertainment. Presented by Kroger and the merchants of Shelter Cove Towne Centre, the Dove Street Festival of Lights™ will run through January 3, 2016 and will be open to the public nightly from 6-10 p.m.
Come check out Harbour Town Lights at The Sea Pines Resort where there’s a towering 30-ft. Christmas tree lit up for the season. Bring a canned good or two, or a new unwrapped children’s toy and place them in the “Well” by the Liberty Oak Stage.
