Christmas in Delray is the most magical time of the season! Everyone should experience Christmas in Delray Beach at least once and then, I bet...you’ll be back again and again!
This wonderful celebration must come to an end on January 2nd at which time the 100-foot Christmas tree is carefully dismantled and put away – until next year.
The holiday season in Delray is said to attract over 500,000 people!
A little more in depth about Delray Beach 100 Foot Christmas Tree:
The world-famous Delray Beach 100-foot Christmas tree is actually a lot more then just a Christmas tree. It’s also a 10-story walk-through holiday showcase with Christmas magic to see on the inside as well as the outside.
The inside of the Christmas tree takes you back in history displaying replicas of four historic buildings in Delray back in the day.
Each building is filled with animated scenes of elves hard at work preparing for the holidays, and penguins playing in snow, and a model train layout transforming it into a magical holiday wonderland.
The outside of the Christmas tree is festively illuminated with over 15,000 LED lights, carefully decorated with 39,000 ornaments, and contains 3000 branches, and then magically topped with an impressive 18-foot star that can be seen from miles away!
The entire community of Delray Beach gets involved with the Christmas tree lighting event. It is our biggest event of the year.
Santa Claus arrives via helicopter during the lighting of the Delray Beach 100-Foot Christmas!
If you have a chance, make your way to Delray Beach to see this beautiful 100 foot Christmas tree!
