Floridians know how to celebrate the winter holidays, even if “winter” doesn't mean here what it means elsewhere. In Palm Beach County, there are dozens of events to mark Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year's and more.
The snow may be fake, but the fun is real. We have holiday parades, holiday boat parades, Christmas tree lightings, menorah lightings, holiday concerts, family festivals and more. Many events are free or cheap.
If you enjoy holiday lights, you can find many places to see that go all out for the holidays.
