The Arrival of Santa Claus

I know…shame on me for even putting a Christmas post up before we have Thanksgiving.  I almost didn’t post this but I decided that since Santa is already on his way to our area, there is no point in putting it off!  Here are some of the places that you might spy Santa.  As always, confirm the dates and times before you go.

Bass Pro Shops – Eek!  Santa has already arrived!  He arrived November 6th and can be visited until Dec. 24th.  Check the schedule before you go because there will be lots of crafts and activities available at different times throughout the next two months.

Cordova Mall – Arrives November 12th at 7pm with an event

Eastern Shore Center – Arrives November 13th

Destin Commons – Santa arrival and tree lighting on November 20

Do you know of any other places where Santa is stopping by?  As it gets closer to December, I will post more of the holiday activities!


  1. Do you or anyone know of places in the Navarre/Ft. Walton area that are decorated for Christmas now? Having family/Christmas pictures next weekend and I was looking for some places.

  2. I think that the tree lighting in the Destin Commons will be on November 20th. I think they have been decorating Downtown Pensacola right now. I wonder if maybe they will decorate down by the Chamber of Commerce in Navarre?

  3. The Bass Pro shop set is very nice..we were there a little over a week ago (Daphne)..try to get there just before they open so you can get thru the line sure to ask for a line can go shop and come back to the front of the line with your time pass.
