Corpus Christi Christmas Traditions

Christmas in Corpus Christi is all about family traditions and twinkling displays of Christmas lights. If you moved to Corpus Christi earlier this year and this will be your first Christmas in town, be sure to check out these Corpus Christi Christmas traditions and make new holiday fun for you and your family.

Lighting of the Park. The lighting of Lamar Park is an annual tradition where Corpus Christi movers and locals gather for shopping, festivities, live music, carolers, and a special ballet performance of the Nutcracker. Get your holiday Christmas shopping done in this cheerful, merry Christmas environment.

Annual Christmas Concert at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. Each year, over 150 music students from Texas A&M perform the sounds of holiday favorites, as well as sing-alongs and other festivities.

Deck the Walls Holiday Art Market. Corpus Christi movers and locals love supporting local business, which is why the Holiday Art Market is so popular. If someone in your family loves art and you have not found them a Christmas gift yet, you may be able to find a local piece to suit their fancy, all while supporting local artists.

Photos with Santa. A Christmas tradition throughout the United States, you can find Santa at nearly all of the local malls and major shopping centers, as well as some random specialty shops around town.

Harbor Lights Festival. For over 34 years, Bayfront Marina has turned into a Fiesta Holiday with Christmas light displays via boat. A South Texas tradition and a “must attend” Corpus Christi Christmas tradition after moving into the area.

Drive-through Live Nativity. Your family can make an easy Christmas tradition out of the annual drive-through live nativity.

Annual Christmas Tree Lighting. Perhaps one of the largest Corpus Christi Christmas traditions, you and your family can join others for hay rides, a petting zoo, face painting, hot cocoa, cookies, Santa, and the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony, which takes place in Ingleside.

Candy Cane Lane. If you are moving to Corpus Christi and are lucky enough to be moving to Candy Cane Lane, you better be ready to decorate your home for Christmas like never before, or you’ll stick out like a sore thumb! Candy Cane Lane is the most decorated, epic Christmas light home display in the city and it never disappoints.

All My Sons Moving & Storage Corpus Christi is the top local moving company in town, and wishes that all new residents and families have a joyous first Christmas by attending some of these local traditions. You can make new holiday memories with your family by creating traditions at home as well. Try making it so that everyone has to wear Christmas pajamas on Christmas Eve, a gift hunt, or special Christmas brunch. By creating new traditions in your new home, it will make the entire family feel as if they have lived there their whole lives.
