Another Festive Holiday on the Bay at The Village Shops!
The Village Shops welcomed December with Holiday on the Bay this past weekend. The Dickens Carolers started the night on a high note, singing “Here Comes Santa Claus”, as the line for Santa Claus quickly grew.
Families, near and far, gathered to take their complimentary printed and emailed photos with Santa. Santa also took the time to visit with the many little boys and girls reviewing Christmas lists and ensuring they all stay on the “Nice” list.
All the while Santa pictures were being taken, guests enjoyed the exciting entertainment surrounding them. Curious and adventurous children frequented The Kowiachobee Animal Preserve table throughout the night petting and holding the snakes, alligators, and skunks. There were also a number of visits to Mrs. Claus to read stories and take photos.
At 6pm, the talented dancers from Dance Arts By Maria took the stage to perform many dance numbers. The crowd gathered immediately clapping and singing along to the favorite holiday jingles. The dance styles consisted of ballet, jazz, hip-hop, and lyrical.
At 7pm, it began to snow in Naples’ North Pole. All guests gathered around Naples’ tallest Christmas tree watching and taking pictures as the snowflakes fell on their heads!
The Holiday on the Bay series will be held every Saturday through Christmas with two additional Sunday and Monday dates, December 23rd and 24th. Come out and visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus before they head back to the North Pole!
