Horses in the Holiday Parade

The crisp snap of seasonal glitter starts with the Holidays by the Sea Weekend in Falmouth. Begin the festive weekend by singing carols at Nobska Lighthouse as the winter’s sun sets over Vineyard Sound. Enjoy a heartwarming breakfast with your stay at the Palmer House Inn before zipping out to greet Santa as he arrives by boat at beautiful Falmouth Harbor. Join in the caroling at the lighting of the Village Green, enjoy the hospitality of merchants as you stroll down decorated Main Street before and after the lighting. Get ready for the biggest small-town Christmas parade in all of Southeast New England. Many of our members produce fun, family-oriented, community events for the Holidays by the Sea Weekend, so be sure to check our online calendar of events and the Main Street kiosk for schedules and plan a family weekend to remember. Or, call us at 508-548-8500 for more information.

The Palmer House Inn is located near the village green and just a few steps from the start of the parade route. The Palmer House Inn is a charming Victorian B&B located in the Historic District, a quiet residential area of tree-lined streets, picket fences, colorful gardens, and elegant homes. Beautiful beaches, quaint shops, ferry shuttles and excellent restaurants, are only a short stroll from the Inn.
