All is bright once again as Starry Nights in Flagler Beach returns for the 2022 holiday season. Throughout the month of December, local homes, businesses, and landmarks, including the iconic Flagler Beach Fishing Pier, are illuminated each evening with festive lighting and décor.  The 2022 Deck the Chairs display will feature Flagler Beach’s popular wooden lifeguard stands, which are relocated to Veterans Park and decorated by local businesses and organizations. Take a scenic cruise along A1A for breathtaking views of the pier or stroll through our charming downtown for a closer look at the lights and displays.

The 2022 Starry Nights in Flagler Beach festivities kick off on Friday, December 2 in conjunction with the monthly First Friday event in Veterans Park. First Friday will begin at 6 p.m. and will feature live holiday music, the Deck the Chairs lighting ceremony and "snow."

The fun continues on Saturday, December 3 with the Flagler Strong Christmas Market at Wickline Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. At 2 p.m., the annual Christmas parade, featuring a Skydiving Santa, will make its way through Flagler Beach.
