Holiday festivities will be in full swing at Downtown Palm Beach Gardens beginning on Friday, November 27, through Thursday, December 31. The lifestyle and retail destination will kick off the joyful season with a daily Holiday Light Show–set to to the rhythm of classic holiday tunes, of course–along the waterfront from 6 to 9 p.m. through Dec. 31. Wander over to Centre Court on Saturday, November 28, to December 19, to listen to the sweet, festive sounds of Christmas carolers from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Downtown Palm Beach Gardens will also offer jovial holiday celebration kits to-go. Beginning Friday, December 4, guests can pick up complimentary gingerbread decorating kits, complete with a link to a gingerbread decorating class led by Nancy Marinoff, owner and instructor of What’s Cooking Kids? The DIY fun continues with New Years Eve kits, available from December 26 to 31, that come stocked with party hats, arts and crafts materials to customize the hats, and noise makers to ring in the New Year.
Local retailers will join in on the holiday spirit and participate in a tree-decorating contest for charity, also through Dec. 31. Each business will decorate a tree in partnership with a local non-profit. The community will select a winner in a text campaign and the winner’s non-profit will receive a donation from Downtown Palm Beach Gardens.
