The holiday season in South Florida just keeps on giving and we’re all here for it! This time round the holiday vibes are calling us up from Delray Beach where they’ll be lighting a giant, 100-foot Christmas tree on Tuesday, November 29.
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.
The tree lighting ceremony is taking place on Tuesday but there will still 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 perfect for pretending you’ve just been whisked away to the North Pole ($4 per session) and more!
There will also be a Holiday Boat Parade, hosted annually on the second Friday of December, which features festively decorated boats decked out in dazzling lights, holiday decor, and costumed captains. The festive flotilla lights up the Intracoastal waterways! Watch locations include:
- Veterans Park – 802 N.E. 1st St.
- Knowles Park – 1001 S. Federal Hwy.
- Intracoastal Park – 2240 N. Federal Hwy.
- Jaycee Park – 2600 S. Federal Hwy.
- Harvey E. Oyer Jr. Park – 2010 N. Federal Hwy.
The Christmas Tree Village opens on Tuesday, November 29, and will be welcoming visitors every day from 6 p.m. onwards all through out the holidays. The magical lighting ceremony for the massive tree begins at 7 p.m. in Old School Square Park. For more info, make sure to check out The City of Delray Beach’s website here.
