It’s Christmas as Usual
on Fifth Avenue South
Holiday season could not be brighter on Fifth Avenue South, as we are truly back in business and full of good cheer. And as the lyrics go, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”
In fact, don’t be surprised that it seems like Christmas as usual on Fifth Avenue South. Regardless of what our beautiful City has been through, December should be a heartwarming month as friends and family come together to celebrate the holidays and enjoy the same excitement that abounds in our community each and every year.
Christmas on Fifth will be a little early this year, however. On December 2-3, our 49th Annual Christmas event will draw thousands of people from all over Southwest Florida, and even from other parts of the state, the nation and even internationally. They will experience the same joy and many of the same festivities the Fifth Avenue South Business Improvement District has hosted in the past, including long-table dining on Fifth Avenue South, a live Nativity scene, and of course, a visit from Santa Claus.A magnificent 20-foot Christmas Tree, trimmed with more than 10,000 LED lights, will be lit at 6pm in Sugden Plaza on the first evening, December 2, and will twinkle and glow through December 31.Our live Nativity scene, conducted by the First Church of the Nazarene, is such a beautiful tradition, and actually features live animals. Donkeys, sheep, and goats will be on hand for the kids to pet, as a stunning angel literally hovers above the stable.Suffice it to say, “Ian” the Grinch will be nowhere near, as children and adults sing carols and take in the wonders of the season.
A new and exciting part of Christmas on Fifth will be our Santa Choice Awards. Santa has been out early visiting stores and restaurants on Fifth Avenue South and determining his choices for a variety of gifts and experiences to make your holiday dining and shopping easier and more fun. Santa will choose Best Gift Awards for her, him, and the kids, as well as Best Cocktail, Best Entrée, and Best Dessert. The winning merchants and restaurants will be featured on Fifth Avenue South’s Facebook page and other social media, posted on our website, and announced at our Christmas on Fifth event. Also look for Santa’s Choice Award door decals posted on the winners’ establishments as you stroll Fifth Avenue South.
Tuba Christmas in Sugden Plaza is a hugely popular event where more than 50 musicians of all ages perform popular holiday tunes and sing-a-longs. In addition to the large recognizable tubas, the evening of music features sousaphones, euphoniums, and baritone horns as well. Most orchestras have only one tuba, so the night literally “blows” you away!!
So, happy holidays from all of us on Fifth Avenue South!! May your days be merry and bright.
