A Lighthouse Christmas

Travel back through time and experience the sights and customs of Christmas at the Tybee Island Light Station in the days of our last Lighthouse Keeper and his family. This quaint depiction of holiday cheer in the 1930s and 40s illustrates the traditions of a simpler time by a small family whose closest, and sometimes only, neighbors were the military families of Fort Screven. Enjoy the twinkle of the Christmas Lights across the island from the top of the Lighthouse, carols, hot cider, and the joy of the season by the warm glow of candlelight.

$25 (Adults) $15 (Children 6-17) Reservations required. Please call 912-786-5801 to reserve early as space is limited.

As we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, the show is not only entertaining but also symbolic of our freedom in the United States. There will be several opportunities to celebrate our nation’s birthday on Savannah’s Waterfront, including live entertainment at Plant Riverside District, dinner and drink specials at many waterfront restaurants, and the Freedom Floats boat parade. Merchants are looking forward to having spectators enjoy the many shopping and dining options along the waterfront over the holiday weekend.

Note that parking at the Savannah Convention Center is limited due to construction and the building will not be open. Spectators on the waterfront are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets; however, coolers are discouraged.
