Christmas Near the Beach occurs December 14th, 2019 at the Arts Park at Young Circle from 4-9 p.m. This southern Florida hometown event features a five hour long celebration of Santa Claus, caroling, tree lighting, gift giving, giveaways from sponsors, flash mobs, and more. Each year brings its own set of surprising delights with a crew of 200 working behind the scenes to create this holiday tradition for thousands.
The event is admission free and filled with craft and food vendors. As well as a celebration, this event becomes a market to find a unique gift this holiday season. Parking is found in two places, which are detailed on the website, and although there is no seating, visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or a blanket to enjoy vendor treats.
This celebration is sure to be a treat as St. Nicholas is escorted by a marching band as he arrives in a classic red car with a surfboard. The event ends in a “rockin’ sleigh” where kids line up to take a photo with the jolly ole Saint Nicholas.
