The annual Corpus Christi Harbor Lights Festival rings in the beginning of the Christmas holiday season by transforming the beautiful Bayfront Marina and skyline into a sparkling Texas holiday scene. An annual Christmas tradition, the Harbor Lights Festival glow celebrates 36 years this year, with a Texas Strong theme.
The Corpus Christi Annual Harbor Lights Festival is located on Shoreline Blvd. on the scenic Bayfront of this Texas Coastal Bend City and attracts more than 20,000 people each year. There is something wonderful there for everyone to enjoy!
The lighting of six beautifully decorated Christmas trees is just one of the highlights of the Corpus Christi Harbor Lights Festival. It’s a family tradition for young and old to enjoy all the lights activities and holiday food. What a magical wonder it is to see Santa and his helpers flip the switch and bring the trees to light!
On the waterfront, the Illuminated Boat Parade is on display as the boats set off on a regatta cruise of the Corpus Christi marina. Captains and crews sing Christmas carols to entertain the crowd.
Children are especially overjoyed about the many activities created especially for them. The Children’s Parade, the Gift of Love Giveaway, the Christmas Activity Area and Fun Zone create an excitement filled area for kids of all ages.
The entertainment stage hosts live music from church groups, school choirs and a talented array of performers bringing Christmas cheer to the Corpus Christi Harbor Lights Festival. Holiday treats and delicious food is available via seven food trucks that tempt festival goers into indulging in tasty holiday treats. Holiday Tree Village and Candy Cane Lane have special Christmas items for holiday shoppers.
