Celebrating the Holidays in The Florida Keys
Lighted Boat Parade – This classic celebration is a Key West tradition hosted by the popular Schooner Wharf Bar and is celebrating its 29th year! Join the festivities at the Historic Seaport, or Mallory Square and watch as boats parade through the harbor with holiday lights.
Holiday Fest in Islamorada – The 15th Annual Islamorada Chamber of Commerce Holiday Fest brings “snow” to the Florida Keys! Kick-off the holiday season at the Holiday Fest Snow Mountain, with 30 tons of the cold white stuff! Fun for the whole family!
Christmas in Key West Trolley Tour – Take an evening tour aboard Old Town Trolley to see the area holiday decorations. Victorian mansions and conch cottages are all dressed up for the holidays and are beautiful! Tours depart from Mallory Square.
Light Up Key Largo – Join in the festivities as local businesses offer holiday cheer at this free event. Activities include an ice-skating rink, Santa’s Workshop with arts and crafts, holiday treats, and ornament making. Enjoy carolers singing and bands playing your favorite holiday songs. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there hear all the children’s holiday wishes!
New Year’s Eve Celebrations – Key West celebrates a variety of ways for New Year’s Eve: The traditional ‘Ball Drop’ at Sloppy Joe’s, the Historic Seaport, and perhaps most infamous being Sushi, the local celebrity drag queen being lowered from a Duval Street balcony in a giant red high-heeled shoe at Bourbon Street Pub/New Orleans House.
