For more than 20 years, Delray Beach has had the legendary 100 ft Christmas Tree (the “tree” is actually made out of 30,000 lbs of metal framing and has 650 steel panels). It has been named one of the best Trees in all of the USA. It’s in good company with other named trees such as the one in Rockefeller Center and the one in the white house.
Due to weather conditions, the December 3rd annual tree lighting ceremony was moved to December 10, 2015. The good news is that you can still catch it.
The Tree Lighting Ceremony takes place at Old School Square on Atlantic Avenue and Swinton. The 15,000 LED lights, 39,500 ornaments, 3,086 branches, and 9,800 lbs of foliage can be viewed until January 1st. At the base of the tree is an entrance into the actual tree itself. Inside you’ll find scenes of different historic landmarks in Delray Beach. It’s just a fun and adorable way to spend time with friends and family.
This is such an amazing time of year in Delray Beach. Enjoy outdoor music, great food, and even an outdoor skating rink.
Don’t miss tonight’s event. The tree lighting kicks off with Santa landing in a helicopter at 7:15 PM to light the tree.
The festivities continue all month long. Friday, December 11th at 6:30 PM is the annual boat parade. Saturday, December 12th at 6:00 PM is the annual holiday parade.
This is the perfect time of year to experience for yourself the undeniable charm of this village by the sea. Come see why Country Living recently named Delray Beach (it’s number 9 on the list) as one of the 20 best small towns for Christmas!
Hope to see you all there.
