While Del Ray Beach doesn’t display the stereotypical, wintery weather of other places around the world, there are still lots of fun activities to be enjoyed this holiday season. The festivities begin with the lighting of the 100-foot Christmas tree, located at Old School Square. Kids and adults alike can visit Santa, ride the holiday carousel, partake in outdoor ice skating and nibble on some great food and drink.
