Spend the entire month of December, and some of November, celebrating the holiday season on Canal Street in New Smyrna Beach. With events like Spark the Spirit kicking off the holiday season and the Christmas Parade, the holiday spirit is alive in NSB! Just because the weather is still warm and the beach is just a few steps away doesn’t mean it won’t feel like the holidays here, especially on Canal Street.
