This is one of the most favorite times for the Pensacola Civic Band and for the Pensacola Music Community. With a festive air and bounce all around, we surround ourselves with the sights and sounds of Christmas. From decorations throughout Downtown Pensacola to the buzz in all the stores, one constant is the music of the Holiday season. We welcome back each year our favorite characters with open arms; Frosty, Rudolph, the Grinch, and many more, and sing their songs that bring back those fond memories.
