The Winter Carnival & Big Truck Roundup goes down Dec. 2, where children can enjoy free carnival rides, games and music at the Village Green. Visitors can also join Santa on Dec. 9 for the Holly Jolly Jekyll Light Parade. Meanwhile, Peppermint Land will feature holiday-themed mini golf. Those brave of heart should mark their calendars for the Cold-Stunned Plunge, an opportunity on Nov. 25 to leap into the Atlantic in support of the Georgia coast’s sea turtles.
The historic district will also feature fireworks on Dec. 21 and Dec. 28, as well as a drive-in movie experience of “Mickey’s Christmas Carol” on Dec. 20 and Dec. 27.
