HEADLAND CHRISTMAS PARADE
Alternates between 2nd Thursday and 2nd Saturday
Just when you thought Saint Nick himself was at the North Pole, he was one last stop…Headland, Alabama. For our Annual Christmas Parade would not be complete without Santa taking a few last minute requests. You can find him sitting in our town’s gazebo; just follow the sweet smells of hot cocoa and peppermints. Along with Santa you will see beautiful holiday displays and music to put you in the mood to admire the lighting of our town’s stunning Christmas tree…complete with ooh’s and ahh’s. Plan on spending a cool, crisp December day in downtown Headland and see the all the wonderment for yourself!
2nd Sunday in December
Holiday open house. Sample turn-of-the-century desserts, sip hot chocolate or mulled cider and try your hand at making traditional Christmas decorations. A circuit-riding preacher will deliver a Christmas message at the church.
SEADAC: THE NUTCRACKER
1st Friday, Saturday and Sunday in December
Dothan Civic Center
SEADAC will present our creation of this timeless ballet based on the story "The Nutcracker and the King of Mice" written by E.T.A. Hoffman. Although what is seen on the stage today is different in detail from the original story, the basic plot remains the same; The story of a young German girl who dreams of a Nutcracker Prince and a fierce battle against a Mouse King with seven heads.
