‘Tis the Season for Trees and Lights

Hard to believe, but the holiday season is upon us and there are many festive tree lighting events happening in Palm Beach County. Holiday tree lighting ceremonies kickoff in November, but if you can’t make the official lighting events, don’t worry as South Florida cities and towns will be glowing with twinkling lights and holiday decorations throughout the season.

And, there’s even “snow” in the forecast among the palm trees at Rosemary Square (formerly called CityPlace). Experience nightly “Snowfall on the Square all December long starting at 6pm, and every hour. It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year in South Florida!
