The Holidays Come to Boca Bayou

by | Jun 1, 2022 | Blog


Christmas and Hannukah have arrived at Boca Bayou! Lights sparkle in some of the condominium windows, and wreaths adorn several doors.

Some may find it challenging to embrace the holiday spirit under a sunny blue sky with temperatures reaching 80 degrees. However, here at Boca Bayou, we believe these conditions are ideal for celebrating a festive season of hope and goodwill – especially this year!

While cold weather confines our family and friends up north indoors, we are fortunate to participate in socially distanced, open-air holiday festivities.

Boat Parades

The pandemic forced the cancellation of this year’s annual Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade, as well as the Boynton Beach/Delray Beach Boat Parade and the big Winterfest Boat Parade in Ft. Lauderdale.

  • If you have your heart set on seeing a boat parade this holiday season, you can still catch the 6th annual the Lake Osborne Holiday Boat Parade (Lantana/Lake Worth) on Saturday, December 19 from 7:30 to 9:30 pm. In addition to the parade of boats around the lake, there will be a collection of new unwrapped toys at the Eastside Dock. 

Holiday Light Displays

If ever there was a year needing a light brave enough to shine in the darkness, it’s 2020!

  • Holiday Fantasy of Lights: Tradewinds Park in Coconut Creek hosts this annual event, perfect for a pandemic-shadowed holiday season as it’s a drive-through experience. You and your bubble can enjoy three miles of giant animated holiday displays and illuminated trees while driving through the park. The event runs nightly from 6 to 10 pm through Jan. 2.
  • Mizner Park: Modern Boca Mom, a big Mizner Park fan, notes that while there wasn’t a big tree lighting ceremony this year, you can still “Get into the holiday spirit at Mizner Park with decorations galore, including a 47’ animated holiday tree located at the South end of the center near Yard House (not at the Mizner Park Amphitheater).”

Whether you’re a longtime resident of Boca Bayou or exploring condominiums for sale or rent in Boca Bayou, we wish you the very best for the holidays!
