This holiday season The Palm Beaches offer numerous events and activities perfect for the entire family! Residents of Old Palm Golf Club are fortunate enough to live only a short drive away from these activities thanks to Old Palm's ideal location in Palm Beach Gardens. Take a look at Old Palm Real Estate's top choices for family-friendly events this December:
Palm Beach Boat Parade
Also on December 4th is the 27th Annual Palm Beach Boat Parade! This highly anticipated event begins at 6:00 p.m. and ends with an extravagant fireworks show at 8:00 p.m. Watch as a long line of vessels in all shapes and sizes cruise down the Intracoastal from North Palm Beach to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, showcasing holiday adornments, lights, and festive decorations! This water-based toy drive is partnered with the U.S. Marine Reserves Toys for Tots. If you are interested in spending the night watching the Boat Parade, Old Palm Real Estate suggests visitors sit at Juno Park, Bert Winters Park, Waterway Park, Sawfish Bay Park, Jupiter Riverwalk, Harbourside Place, or Lighthouse Park.
