Be a part of the excitement as local high school bands, mascots, The Caloosa Jeepers Club of SWF, Oak Creek Charter School, Estero High School Football Team, Estero Fire Rescue, the LCSO and more join Santa Claus in a dazzling parade. At 7 p.m., witness the magic unfold as Santa Claus leads the lighting of our 32-foot Christmas tree, marking the beginning of a joyous holiday season! Santa will be available for photos sponsored by Lennar Homes, LLC until 8 p.m. following the tree lighting ceremony. Participating food trucks will offer a tropical menu of coconut-themed and Caribbean-inspired items, while vendors will showcase shell art, coconut carvings, and palm leaf weave designs. Moreover, we invite the community to join us in spreading the spirit of Christmas by participating in the Toys for Tots Toy Drive. Visitors are encouraged to donate a new, unopened toy at Toy World, located on Fashion Drive by Dillards, and be a part of brightening the lives of children in need. The CaloosaJeepers of SWFL will be collecting donations during their Meet & Greets, delivering all contributions to Santa’s workshop at Toy World at the end of the event. Additionally, on December 3, Santa will be available in the Play Area sponsored by Toy World, ready to capture the magical moments with your family. Bring your own camera and take memorable photos with Santa from 1pm to 5pm. Join us for an unforgettable night of music, entertainment and shopping, as we celebrate the holiday season in tropical style at Coconut Point!
