On 1 December, festivities officially get underway when a large, well-lit Christmas tree is set up along the Paseo de Marianas in Garapan on Saipan’s west coast. Garapan is the hotel and tourist centre of the island and also has some of the best beach strands.

On every Saturday between 1 December and 25 December, there are kid-focused Christmas events throughout Saipan and elsewhere. You will see floats, costumes, game tents, street food, music, dancing, plays, and more.
