Tropical Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting at Coconut Point
Don’t you just love this time of year? There are so many fun events to enjoy with family and friends. And how cool that here in Southwest Florida the weather is nice all year round and we can enjoy events like the Tree Lighting at Coconut Point outdoors without layers and layers of winter clothes.
Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting at Coconut Point
Saturday, December 2nd from 5-8pm. Come on out to Coconut Point in Estero for the vibrant fusion of tropical celebration and holiday cheer as we bring together a plethora of entertainment, delectable coconut and Caribbean-inspired bites and the spirit of giving back to the community.
The evening will begin with live performance of steel drum music, tropical and Polynesian-inspired performances and more. The crowd is encouraged to join in on a fun singalong of a Hawaiian version of the popular 12 Days of Christmas before the parades gets started.
Local high school bands will join in on the fun, along with the Estero High School football team, Estero Fire Rescue, the Lee County Sherriff’s Office and more members of the community.
At 7pm we will reach the pinnacle of the event with a visit from the big guy himself. Santa Claus will lead the lighting of the 32-foot Christmas tree, marking the beginning of a joyous holiday season! Santa will be available for photos sponsored by Lennar Homes, LLC until 8pm following the tree lighting ceremony. Participating food trucks will offer a tropical menu of coconut-themed and Caribbean-inspired items, while vendors will showcase shell art, coconut carvings, and palm leaf weave designs.
Southwest Florida Holiday Events Happening in 2023
The year of 2023 is just flying by! Before we know it, it will be the new year! How did we get here so fast?
We’re almost half way through November which means Thanksgiving and the mouth watering meal is upon us and it’s almost time for Christmas and all the fun holiday cheer that comes along with the season.
I don’t know about you, but I am ready to put up the Christmas tree and hang the stocking, wear matching pajamas with my loved ones, watch Christmas movies on repeat and drink hot chocolate (yes, even in Florida).
The weather down here in Southwest Florida is cooling off a bit…just a bit, and getting outside to enjoy the holiday events is so enjoyable.
