When and Where

The Christmas Tree Lighting Party and celebration really brightens up at 4:30 p.m. with the illumination of thousands of string lights hanging from the boughs of a broad evergreen.

The Christmas Tree Lighting happens beside the water tower that reads “Welcome to Dauphin Island” – a testament to the warm, friendly nature of our community. The tree will be located on the corner of Bienville Blvd. and Dauphin Island Pkwy., but festivities will take place in the surrounding area and along Bienville Blvd throughout the day.

Dauphin Island is perhaps the most exceptional place to spend the holidays. Escape the bitter cold of the north without worry about missing out on the holiday spirit – Dauphin Island has plenty of it to go around. Here, you have the chance to explore the Gulf of Mexico coastline without the holiday rush that plagues bigger cities and tourist desinations.

Dauphin Island is the largely untapped coastal town that is safe and welcoming. Feel free to send the kids off to bike the island without worry, or go on a family trip to the beach or through the wildlife sanctuaries searching for beautiful scenery and animals around every corner.
