We are excited for this years annual Holidays at the Beach!  This beloved event draws our community and visitors into town during our “Quiet Season”–and to the Peninsula on a popular travel weekend. Last year, we had an extremely large turnout; the result of our extensive advertising and return guests who have fallen in love with the event.

We are excited to introduce a new contest designed to be fun, promote camaraderie, and bring visitors to your shop. The contest will provide funding needed to make Holidays at the Beach sustainable.

Wreath Decorating Contest & Silent Auction


Participants will create a one-of-a-kind wreath (Long Beach Merchants Association is supplying the basic wreath).  The finished works will be displayed in your place of business from Saturday, November 10 to Friday November 23.  If you do not have a storefront, we will coordinate with a business to display your wreath.


During the two-week display period, customers are invited to visit your place of business to see your wreath up close and personal.  You’ll remind them they have a chance to win it in a Silent Auction Saturday.

Silent Auction

The Silent Auction is Saturday, November 24. at the Veteran’s Field building, during the Holidays at the Beach Annual Family Show from 11am–5pm.  Auction winners will be announced at 5pm.  Winners may pick up their prizes after the Tree lighting and Caroling Saturday evening (begins at 5:15pm) or on Sunday during the shows that begin at 11am.
