The holidays on Third Street South are truly charmed. Everywhere you look, there are bright lights and festive decorations. Shops are filled to the brim with tempting goodies, whether shopping for loved ones or thinking about treating yourself to something special. Restaurants are bustling and welcoming, with family and friends gathered in happy reunions.
The celebrations kick off formally with the annual lighting of the Christmas tree on November 21, 2016. An event that has become a beloved tradition, thousands gather on Third Street South to celebrate, as musicians and dancers perform, the live crèche enchants all ages, Santa and the Snow Queen arrive, the Mayor lights the tree, and the snow begins to fall!
Throughout the holiday season, from Thanksgiving week until New Year’s Eve, regular snowfall and musical performances create a joyful atmosphere. During Thanksgiving week, enjoy the snowfall each night, except for Thanksgiving Day, and again every Thursday throughout the month of December. The holidays on Third Street South culminate on New Year’s Eve with the fireworks display at the historic Naples Pier.
At all times, capture a little of the magic of the Christmas spirit on Third Street South.
