Tree Lighting

Don’t miss the lighting of Delray’s legendary 100 foot tree, Thursday, Dec. 5.

On the Ave activities begin at 5 p.m.

Get there early, get your parking and get near the tree to catch all the action.

Santa will arrive in his typical dramatic fashion.

If you miss Santa, he will most likely be selling olive oil Saturday at The Green Market. (That’s an inside joke, but say hello to Jim Nolan, Delray’s chief Santa when you see him.)

Open Studios in Artist’s Alley

We urge you to put art on your holiday shopping list and we urge you to support local artists.

Fortunately, our artistic community makes it easy to purchase local art, with Open Studios every Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. in Delray’s coolest little neighborhood Artist’s Alley.

The alley runs north and south between NE 3rd and 4th Streets, east of 3rd Avenue and west of the RR tracks.
