Village Shops on Venetian Bay Concluded Holiday On The Bay for the Season!

That’s a wrap! On Christmas Eve, The Village Shops on Venetian Bay wrapped up their series of Holiday on the Bay events, which took place every Saturday from November 25th to December 23rd, as well as Sunday, December 24th.

Naples’ North Pole provided nothing short of a magical holiday experience. The man in the big red suit was the guest of honor as neighbors, family, and friends lined up each weekend for their complimentary photos and to make sure they were on the nice list. The fun continued as all the boys and girls read Christmas stores with Mrs. Claus and enjoyed a white Christmas during The Village Shops’ snow show.

The holiday cheer was prominent throughout the series with special performances from the Dickens Carolers, Dance Arts by Maria, Fred Astaire Dance Studio, Naples Academy of Ballet, and Groove Culture Music School. These performances each put a unique twist on classic Christmas carols, as crowds sang and danced along to the music.

Holiday on the Bay also featured friendly furry and reptile guests, brought by the Kowiachobee Animal Preserve. Snakes, alligators, turtles, and skunks all joined in on the excitement, interacting and taking photos with the guests, even sneaking their own photo op with Santa Claus. On Christmas Eve, the much-anticipated tiger made an appearance to conclude another great holiday season!

Thank you to all who came out and celebrated Holiday on the Bay with us. We look forward to seeing you next year in Naples’ North Pole!
