Hilton Head 2012 Holiday Happenings

Experience Hilton Head Island in all of its Holiday glory.

The Holiday season is upon us and whatever holidays you celebrate, Hilton Head is decking their halls. Here are some events that will put you in the mood to spend time with family and friends:

  • Ice skating at Liberty Oak in Harbour Town: the skating rink will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., including Christmas Day and New Year's Eve, from December 22 through December 31, 2012. The cost is $12 per adult and $8 per child, ages 12 years and younger (skates are included).

  • For holiday music enjoyment:
    ◦ The 3rd Annual Island Holiday concert featuring the Festival Chorus & Ensemble. December 1, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. and December 2, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Francis by the Sea.
    ◦ Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra performs at 8:00 p.m. on December 3rd at First Presbyterian Church.
    ◦ The Hilton Head Choral Society will dazzle with their musical prowess December 14 at 8:00 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church.

  • The kids will surely enjoy the Winter Wonderland Festival December 14 and 15th at Shelter Cove Community Park. Activities include: a candy cane hunt, crafts, marshmallow roasts, bounce houses, local entertainment, and appearances by Santa & Mrs. Claus. The Hilton Head Island Recreation Association Children's Scholarship Fund will benefit from all proceeds.

  • Holiday lighting displays can be toured at: Harbour Town, Fire Station #3, and the South Beach Christmas Village.

  • The 21st Annual Hilton Head Regional Medical Center Jingle Jingle 5K Run and Health Walk is happening on December 22 this year. Participants are asked to bring new unwrapped toys, gift cards, or phone cards for donations to benefit CODA (Citizens Opposed to Domestic Abuse).

    Share the joy of the season with members of the community. While enjoying the holiday sparkle, everyone can share a little of the season's spirit of giving by bringing a canned good or two, or a new unwrapped child's toy and dropping them in the "Well" on the Liberty Oak Stage for the Deep Well Project, the non-profit, volunteer-based organization which provides food, financial, and shelter services to those in need on Hilton Head Island.

    Happy Holidays!
