Christmas Season Begins at The Beaches

The Christmas season at The Beaches kicks off this week first in Neptune Beach, then in Atlantic Beach.

The cities were busy preparing for the festivities on Tuesday, stringing lights and hoisting the city Christmas trees into position.

The City of Neptune Beach’s Community Development Director Amanda Askew, as well as Danny Johnson and Bobby Williams from the Public Works Department, were charged with the preparation tasks at Neptune Beach’s Jarboe Park.

The event kicks off Friday night at 6:15pm, with the lighting of the tree the trio were busy preparing.

Head over to Atlantic Beach on Saturday starting at 3pm to join in on the fun events going on that will precede the tree lighting at 6pm.

Even Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive just in time to see the tree get lit.
