THE season is upon us. You can see it in the store, see it on the TV, hear it on the radio or anywhere you happen to go. So you are not in the spirit yet? Here are some suggestions:
November 22nd: Festival of Lights on Third Street South.
Stroll along Third Street, streets are closed to cars, dine, listen to carolers,enjoy the faux snow coming from the light polls. It all sets the mood and to top off the night, Mayor Bill flips the switch on the huge Christmas Tree. It is a little different with shorts and sandals but always fun.
December 7th: the annual Naples Christmas Parade.
This parade winds its self from Third Street and down 5th Avenue. thousands of people, lots of kids catching candy while waiting for Santa, marching bands and always fun.
December 8th: Greg Norman's Shark Shootout.
Not a Christmas event but because it is an annual event it always denotes Christmas time. Players this year include Justin Leaonard and Davis Love III.
December 11th: the annual Naples Bay Christmas Boat Parade.
From Crayton Cove to Naples Bay boat owners decorate their boats and illuminate the waters with bright lights and Christmas themes.
December 31st: Fireworks on the beach to bring in the New Year.
