Get Lit with Broward County’s Holiday Lights
We don’t know about you, but one of our favorite holiday activities is getting in our cars and going for a cruise around town to check out the Christmas light displays and Christmas parades. Each year, Broward County has a variety of Christmas light events, some of which you walk through and others you can enjoy from the car. Check out some of our favorite fun and affordable holiday light show options in Broward County
Holiday Fantasy of Lights
The Holiday Fantasy of Lights is an annual drive thru holiday light show at Tradewinds Park in Coral Springs. The show began on November 18 and it will be open through January 1. Aside from three miles of light displays, on Friday nights there is a “Food Truck Invasion.” So, grab some grub, throw on the Christmas music and take a drive through this awesome show. You will love it! Check their website for admission fees.
Light Up Lauderdale
Light Up Lauderdale is an annual event held at the Riverwalk in Fort Lauderdale. The light displays are up for ten weeks, but you can’t stay in your car for this one. In addition to the lights, there is also a Christmas tree and a Menorah on display as well. This is a free, family-friendly event. Parking is available at nearby garages and meters.
There might not be any snow, but the Plantation Historical Museum turns a piece of South Florida into a Winter Wonderland. Over 40 decorated and themed Christmas trees are on display and there are hundreds of snowflakes hanging from the ceiling. There is no fee to enter and the show begins December 1 and continues through January 9. The museum is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade
The annual boat parade is a favorite holiday event for locals! This year the boat parade is on December 10 and begins at 6:30 p.m. For a few hours, festive and lit up boats from local residents and businesses will float down the intracoastal with music and spreading holiday cheer. There are various viewing points and there is no charge to watch.
