Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve and it’s time to go out and celebrate. It has been a time honored tradition to ring in the New Year with a bang, whether you would like to have dinner with family and friends or party the night away at your favorite Anna Maria Island Restaurant. It might be a good idea to make reservations and insure your New Year’s plans are all set up. Take a look at the list of Anna Maria Island and surrounding area restaurants that will be open New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day…
Happy Holidays to all of you, from all of us at Island Real Estate. Yesterday we received a letter from Santa Claus. The letter contained this picture, and list of his favorite restaurants in the area, that will be open for Christmas. We also want you to know that Publix Super Market in Holmes Beach will be open from 7:30AM – 7:00PM on Christmas Eve and Closed on Christmas Day.
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.
