Friday we kicked off the first of the December Holiday events here on Anna Maria Island. It all started with the Holmes Beach Parade and the lighting of the Christmas tree at the Holmes Beach Chamber of Commerce. The parade was chock full of characters, we saw pirates, reindeer, and even Santa showed up for the Holiday fun. The Holmes Beach Chamber of Commerce lit their beautifully decorated Christmas tree just before the parade ended.
After the tree was lit, Santa showed up across the street in the Holmes Beach Plaza where the Holmes Beach merchants hosted an open house. Soon after Santa Claus arrived it stated snowing, (fake snow that is) but it was really cool and everyone was in the Holiday Spirit. As the snow fell and the music played the children got a chance to meet Santa Claus and give him this year’s wish list, we all had a great time.
