Celebrate Christmas by the Bay the Tropical way! Rockport-Fulton pulls out all the stops for another dazzling holiday spectacular in this lovely Texas coastal area. Downtown Rockport and Rockport Harbor were rockin’ and rolling all day on December 7 with the 15th annual Tropical Christmas at Aransas County Navigation Fairgrounds. That event was just the start of all the festive fun, and now Rockport has a jam-packed schedule of upcoming Christmas magic.

A highly anticipated highlight of Christmas by the Bay is the gorgeous Lighted Boat Parade at Rockport Harbor starting at dark on December 14. Spectators are encouraged to come to the Rockport Yacht Club or the surrounding area for the best view. Visitors and residents are invited to attend The Yacht Club’s open house during and after the Lighted Boat Parade. Boat owners are invited to enter their decorated vessels and they can attend the Skipper’s meeting as well at the Rockport Yacht club at 9 a.m. on December 14.

5th Annual Christmas in the District is from 5-8 p.m. on December 14 in Downtown Rockport, presented by downtown Rockport merchants. Stroll along the shops beneath the glow of Christmas lights to find special holiday sales. Photos with Santa Claus make this event fun for all ages! Caroling by the Rockport-Fulton High School Choir is another highlight. The City of Rockport promises to keep the Holiday Trolley running between downtown and the Fulton Mansion’s long-anticipated reopening!

Yes, it’s finally time to come “Home for the Holidays” and celebrate the Fulton Mansion’s grand reopening after two years of post-Hurricane Harvey repairs. Activities for the family are from 2-8 p.m. with a ribbon cutting and self-guided tours of the mansion. Costumed docents are volunteers and Rockport Little Theatre members. David & Barbara Brown and The Independent Thieves provide musical entertainment.
