Two town trees light up marking the beginning of the season

Posted On: 11-29-2017

Palm Beach kicked off the Christmas season Tuesday night as two town trees were ceremoniously lit.

The night’s events started with the lighting of the Memorial Park tree in front of Town Hall. The King’s Academy chorus, dressed in tuxedos and gowns, serenaded the crowd of more than 100 people with Christmas carols.

As the choir sang, a Palm Beach Fire Department truck escorted Santa to the park to meet with the children and hand out tree ornaments to each child.

The children told Santa their Christmas wishes and counted down with Mayor Gail Coniglio before the tree was illuminated at the Greater South County Road Association event. As the sun began to set, holiday fans made their way to the next annual event, the Worth Avenue parade.

The Worth Avenue crowd, which reached about 2,000, danced and sang together as classic Christmas songs echoed throughout the street and vias. They counted down to the tree lighting.

“We’re just trying to get in the spirit,” said seasonal resident Cheryl Bauer.

The Cardinal Newman High School marching band led the parade that also included luxury cars and, of course, Santa himself. This year, Santa traded in his sleigh for a speed boat from FastBoats Marine Group.

The 40-foot tree sits between the Chanel and Tiffany’s stores and is fully lit and ready to stand tall throughout Worth Avenue’s shopping season.
