Jekyll Island, GA, is a magical place year round, but especially during the holiday season. From dazzling light displays and breakfast with Santa to drive-in movie showings, the island hosts a series of holiday events sure to keep everyone in your crew entertained. Join the festivities and check out these four holiday activities taking place in December on Jekyll Island.

Holly Jolly Lights Tour

Imagine setting your sights on over 1 million light bulbs and counting. That’s how many lights grace Jekyll Island during the holiday season. The best way to tour the amazing light displays around the island is to hop on board Jekyll’s jolliest trolley, where everyone can sit back, relax, and view the lights from Beach Village all the way to the Historic District. With a little holiday music and festive beverages served along the way, this is a light tour you will never forget.

Breakfast With Santa

Chat with Santa over a delicious meal at Breakfast With Santa, held throughout December at the Jekyll Island Convention Center. Guests will enjoy Santa’s favorites: pancakes, eggs, and bacon. There will also be a hot chocolate bar! Bring your appetite and a letter for Santa to this all-ages event.

Holiday Fireworks

What screams celebration more than fireworks?! On Dec. 11 and 18 at 7 PM, bring the whole family down to Great Dunes Beach Park for a free fireworks show in celebration of the season. Watch the sky light up, and see spirits run high at this free event.

Drive-In Movie: Frosty The Snowman

Enjoy a movie beneath the stars just like the good ole’ days at a classic drive-in setup featuring the family-favorite movie, Frosty The Snowman. After an afternoon of shopping and food at Beach Village, park your vehicle in the Convention Center parking lot, tune into the radio channel, and watch the original version of this classic holiday movie on a big screen! You may even catch a glimpse of Santa at this free event, so make sure to show up early!

Get into the holiday spirit in no time with a visit to one of these four holiday activities on Jekyll Island. For more fun and entertainment at the holidays and year round, check out Odyssey Lake’s blog.
