Delightful Dunedin Holiday Traditions

The quaint town of Dunedin knows how to bring traditional charm to the holidays in Florida with time-honored downtown and waterway events.

What better way to enjoy all Dunedin’s holiday charm than from the waterfront luxury of Beso Del Sol Resort? From studio to penthouse, our comfortable suites with beautiful views have everything you need for a very relaxing holiday.

Enjoy these events while visiting Beso:

Lighted Boat Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony
December 6, Dunedin Marina
Instead of marching down the street, boats bearing holiday cheer parade through the Marina. Onlookers enjoy snacks, S’Mores and live holiday entertainment while waiting for Santa to top off the festivities when he comes cruising in on his boat. Following the parade, join Santa in the countdown for the lighting of the Christmas tree!

Old Fashioned Christmas & Holiday Parade
December 13, Downtown Dunedin
Downtown Dunedin is teeming with festive fun on December 13. Carriage rides, snow slide, train rides, holiday crafts, games, live music and snow flurries are happening up and down Main Street while everyone waits for Santa to make his big entrance during the traditional Holiday Street Parade. The parade begins at 4 p.m. along Douglas Avenue from Beltrees to Monroe.
