Holiday Events 2019
It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
The magic of the holiday season kicks off in December at Village Hall with three amazing events treating everyone with a cheery blend of holiday traditions, student performances, food, arts & crafts, carnival rides and inflatables, a tree lighting, a faux snowstorm, pictures with Santa and other special character appearances and surprises. Please read below for event details and parking information.
As we tend to call this time, “The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year”, it’s often easy for us to forget that for many children, it’s not. Many children go without gifts during the holiday season and it’s easy to fall victim to the commercial nature of the holiday season, but the true spirit of the holiday comes from giving back, giving thanks and lending a helping hand. That is why this year, the Village of Palmetto Bay has partnered with the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program. During “Holiday Lights & Dine” and “Light Your Holidays” event, you will have the opportunity bring joy to a child by bringing in an unwrapped toy. Please CLICK HERE to choose your Angel Tag. For more information on this program please visit The Salvation Army Angel Tree.
