The holiday season in South Florida is just arriving and we’re all here for it! This time around, the holiday vibes are calling us up from Delray Beach where they’ll be lighting a giant, 100-foot Christmas tree on Tuesday, November 28.
A tradition since 1993, the magical mammoth of a tree has been named “Best Tree in the State of Florida” by Travel+ Leisure multiple times before and features thousands of twinkling lights that are bound to warm up even the coldest of hearts.
While the tree lighting ceremony takes place on Tuesday, there will be plenty of jolly activities and events to check out at Delray’s Holiday Village. There will be a holiday carousel ($4 per ride — but will be free Dec. 24-25), photos with Santa, ice skating that’s perfect for pretending you’ve just been whisked away to the North Pole ($4 per session) and more!
Visitors can also expect several food trucks on Swinton Ave., over 60 vendors down Atlantic Avenue and Pineapple Grove, as well as three entertainment stages.
The Christmas Tree Village opens on Tuesday, November 28, and will be welcoming visitors every day since then, from 6 p.m., onwards throughout the holidays. The magical lighting ceremony for the massive tree begins at 6 p.m. in Old School Square Park. For more info, make sure to check out The City of Delray Beach’s website here.
