The holidays are upon us, and in true Marco Island style, you can celebrate with a sense of community pride at a number of fabulous activities planned to ring in the season.
November Holiday Events on Marco Island
Santa shows up on Marco Island at the Shops of Marco on November 27. Rumor has it that he’ll be touching down at 6 p.m.
He’s arriving just in time for the Christmas tree lighting in Veterans Community park, which is scheduled for Saturday, November 28 at 6 p.m.
Santa may be trading in his reindeer for a bike on Sunday, November 29 so he can participate in the Joy of Giving Motorcycle Poker Run, which begins at 8:30 a.m. The ride starts at 701 Bistro, and bikes start rolling out at 10 a.m.
December Holiday Events on Marco Island
Holiday Pets on Parade promises to be an incredibly fun (and adorable) event. Between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on December 1, local furry community members will strut their stuff starting at CJ’s on the Bay. Bring your four-legged friend, suited up for the holidays, to join the fun.
‘Tis the season for parades, because Marco Island’s annual boat parade kicks off at 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 5. Show up at The Esplanade early if you’re going to watch – the area fills up quickly each year. (You can get a great view from Snook Inn, too.)
December 6 at 6 p.m., bring family and friends to the Chamber of Commerce Christmas Gala. It’s at Bistro Soleil, and it’s always a great time.
If you’ve always wanted to have cookies and milk with Santa, you’ll get your chance on Saturday, December 12 at 10 a.m. (Cookies before lunch? Absolutely!) He’ll be at Mackle Park – but this time he’s arriving in a helicopter.
After you’ve had a chance to snack with Santa, head to the annual street parade, which starts at 6:30 p.m. (There’s still time to sign up if you’d like to be part of the parade.) The parade runs down Marco Road, and it’s going to be a spectacular display of all things holiday-related.
