Santa has his sleigh and Jekyll Island has golf carts! Join in the fun of the festive Holly Jolly Jekyll Parade, where golf carts don their Christmas best and jingle all the way through the Historic District to the Main Lawn.
Island guests and residents are encouraged to watch the parade along the route, and afterwards meet on the Main Lawn to view all of the participants. While you're there, enjoy holiday music, compete in holiday trivia and an ugly sweater contest, and work on your Christmas shopping lists at the Pier Road shops. Everyone is encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys for the Georgia State Patrol's Toys for Tots drive.
Deck your carts with boughs of holly and win an award! Rumor has it Santa has some new awards up his sleeve.
All entries must have working, visible headlights to participate. Limit one prize per entry. See full entry rules here.
Jekyll Island will be seeking volunteers to help with the parade. If you're interested in helping with this fan-favorite event, please contact Erin Evors or visit our volunteer page to learn more.
