It's Christmas time in Beaufort (Update: Photos, video)
(Updates at the bottom.)
With the Thanksgiving turkey behind us it's time to look toward what's next, and that's Christmas.
With that comes a host of area events, but probably none as popular as this coming weekend's lineup, which includes:
- A Night on the Town, Friday, December 2, 6-8 p.m.;
- The Light up the Night Boat Parade, Saturday, December 3, 5:30-8:30 p.m.; and
- The annual Christmas Parade, Sunday, December 4, 3 p.m..
We'll send you to Main Street Beaufort's website for the details.

Update December 3: As usual, Night on the Town was a smashing success.
"What a wonderful 2011 Night on the Town. Large friendly crowd, sales generated for downtown businesses, outstanding performances, Santa, the tree lighting and a spectacular concert by the world renowned Marine Corps Band," wrote Beaufort Mayor Billy Keyserling. "Thank you sponsors and Mainstreet for organizing the event and those who joined us for a merry evening in the best hometown in the world."
Tonight is the Light up the Night Boat Parade and Sunday is the Christmas Parade — followed up Monday by the start of the Festival of Trees on Monday.
Update December 4: Don't forget today at 3 p.m. is the Christmas parade. Also, The Island Packet has a couple photos from the boat parade.
Update December 5: There are a few photo albums online of the Christmas parade, but the better I've seen comes by way of Captured Moments Photography; check it out here and do note the pager at the top (yes, there are five pages of shots).
