Bridge Street Hosting Festive Holiday Events for Families

  • 2021 Christmas & Holiday fun starts December 3.
  • Features a laser light show, Santa visits, & kid's characters!

For my kids the holidays are all about Santa, hot chocolate, and snow. For me it’s more about the music, Christmas lights, and snow. There is one place each holiday season that provides almost everything on both our lists – snow in Alabama is still rare enough to be a novelty. Bridge Street Town Center lights its giant Christmas tree each year around mid-November and if you aren’t already in the holiday mood by then, these FREE family-friendly events will get you there.

While there is no official tree-lighting event this year, the giant tree is already lit up and there are some new holiday activities to enjoy at Bridge Street. You can even make an outing of it – our group typically meets up at Barnes & Noble and then heads out towards the big Christmas tree. You can experience all these activities below by walking that route. (TIP: get there early to avoid parking hassles and as an added bonus, plenty of time to enjoy a little Starbucks)

Santa will be at Bridge Street throughout the season spreading holiday magic and taking photos in the open-air environment, near the giant Christmas tree.

Physical interaction with Santa is not permitted, visitors must remain six feet apart from Santa at all times. Visitors are required to wear a mask at all times during Santa visit; only permitted to remove mask when “saying cheese” for the photo. (Masks not required for children 2 & under).
