What’s Happening in Cayman this December

The holiday season is a special time of year for a variety of reasons. From gifts and decorations, to cheesy Hallmark movies and family gatherings. It may seem as if the season to be jolly can’t get much better, but if you happen to be spending the holidays in Cayman this year, there is even more to look forward to. Luckily for you, the month of December is stacked full of events that the whole family can enjoy.

Enjoy spectacular fireworks displays and an enchanting parade of boats set aglow by twinkling Christmas lights at the Cayman National Parade of Lights on Saturday December 7th. This annual holiday event also features a Christmas concert and a special appearance from Father Christmas himself.

For those who are looking to stretch those legs and work off some of those holiday indulgences, register for the Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon taking place on Sunday December 8th. Entering into its 15th year, this race is known for being warm, friendly and well-organized. The Intertrust marathon is the perfect race for runners of all experience levels.

If the feat of a marathon is simply too daunting, check out the Santa Run on Saturday December 14th. One Santa costume is included with each registration (hat, beard, jacket, belt and pants), and along the way there will be sponsored ‘Cheer Stations’ to keep the festive spirit going! Featuring ‘milk and cookie’ stops by Santa’s Elves, Pelt the Grinch music, and so much more.

At Pedro St. James, they are hosting a complimentary event involving tree lighting, carol singing, and a visit from Santa! Food and drinks will be on sale to enjoy with the family. It will be an evening of fun, family, culture, and Christmas spirit!

The Night Markets at Anchor & Den are always the highlight of the week. Entrance to these events are free, but you can purchase food and beverage tickets to enjoy throughout the evening. Imagine an experience rather than an event – there will be live music, food, handcrafted cocktails, and shopping. The Christmas theme will take the enjoyment a step further!
