The holiday season is here, but so is a forecast that will bring rain showers to Beaufort County this weekend.

The weather isn’t dampening our holiday spirit in the area, though. The Bluffton Christmas Parade will happen rain or shine, according to a press release.

Holiday events such as Harbour Town Lights and Shelter Cove Towne Centre’s Holiday Lights will also happen as planned.

That’s all good news for those who don’t care about getting a little wet while ringing in some holiday cheer. Here are some other holiday events that won’t involve getting damp.

Go to a show

If you still want to get out of the house, there are a number of holiday movies, concerts and shows happening in the county (and even Savannah).

Watch the Championship game of a lifetime

Okay, you might get some negative points from Santa for celebrating sports over the holidays, but you really can’t celebrate the holidays without some college football
