Christmas by the Sea at Lauderdale by the Sea

I am really looking forward to this one!  You all know how much I love the events that Lauderdale by the Sea puts on!  We go every year to Christmas by the Sea and I have to admit, this is the epitome of Christmas on the beach.  We had such a wonderful time eating ice cream and watching our daughter dance to a steel drum band playing Christmas carols. There is a great little area set up for the kids to visit with Santa.

The best part is that Santa arrives on a decorated fire truck to light the giant Christmas Tree in the Town Square.  The kids went crazy!  Last but not least was the “snow” that sprays from the tree once it is lit up.  Okay so the snow is actually just soap bubbles so don’t open your mouth, but the effect really sets the mood.

Head down to the Town of Lauderdale by the Sea, grab a drink or an ice cream and enjoy the South Florida winter!

The Town Calandar has this scheduled for December 12, 2012 at 6pm and the tree is lit at dusk.

Christmas by the Sea Review

Wow, this was a crazy busy event!  The place was packed which made it difficult to let my 2 year old walk around for fear that she would get run over.  That being said, she was out of her mind excited to see Santa in the parade on top of the fire truck!

All and all it turned out be a lovely night.  It was cool for Florida and it felt wonderful!  There were pony rides, the steal drum band, and of course an Elvis Karaoke band that was quit fun to watch.

I know, I know I promised a video blog and I am working on it!  Apparently I am not as talented at movie making as I had assumed.  I will try to salvage something of the video to post ASAP!

I think we are going to check out the lights at Tradwinds park this weekend so I will get back to you on that very soon too.

Happy Holidays!
