St. Johns Town Center Holiday Spectacular - TONIGHT!
St. Johns Town Center Holiday Spectacular Begins Today at 2pm
Let the Holiday Season Begin!
I know, I know...it's not even Thanksgiving yet. If you feel that way about the holidays then just get off of this page, because I am having none of that nonsense over here. I. LOVE. THE. HOLIDAYS. And Sorry, I'm not sorry that I like to celebrate for longer than 25 days. Or two weeks. Or whatever you grinches feel is an acceptable time free for holiday shenanigans.
Treat Everyday Like Christmas
So how do I kick off the holidays each year? I know it's Christmas on my calendar after that BIG fancy tree at the St. Johns Town Center is all LIT up and ready for visitors. And today is the start of my holiday season!
Jax friends, make plans to join me and some of the other fabulous ladies (that you hopefully read about on yesterday's post...if you didn't, HI, CLICK HERE) tonight at the St. Johns Town Center for the Holiday Spectacular.
This is one of my favorite events in Jacksonville every year BECAUSE I AM A HOLIDAY JUNKIE and it's one you don't want to miss. Events start at 2 pm today and it's fun for the entire family.
Santa, I Know Him!
Although Elf himself has yet to make an appearance, we're joined this year by Elvis Duran and the Morning Show personality Skeery Jones and the country group Parmalee. ALSO, my girl Catalina from 97.9 KISS FM and the But First, Brunch podcast will be there giving him the assist on the mic. ;-) Events are free for the whole family, start at 2 pm, and end tonight with a concert, holiday songs, Santa's arrival, the gorgeous tree lighting, and fireworks.
Buddy The Elf, What's Your Favorite Color?
No, this is not my first rodeo. My family and I attend this event every year and always have a blast. If you have young ones who can't stay out as late, no worries. Bring them this afternoon to try out some of the fun festivities but know patience is a virtue. Yes, it will be busy. Yes, you'll have to spend more than .8 seconds to park. And yes, there will be a crowd of other festive folks. BUT. IT'S. SO. WORTH. IT. (Btw, if parking and walking is an issue there are several easy solutions. 1) The Town Center has valet. Use it. They rock. 2) They also have shuttles. I'm dropping a link to the shuttle information here. If you feel like you've parked so far and can't walk to the middle area where the tree is located, then call them. They will come and pick you up. FOR FREE. I'm serious. Call 904.610.9182.)
Light It Up
One little-known fact about me is my love for the Elvis Duran and the Morning show on 97.9 KISS FM. For the last few years, one of their hosts has joined us in Jacksonville for the fun. We have an annual Fireball tradition and it will continue this year. You don't have to join this tradition. It's just a purse smuggle I started two years ago because I hope to make Elvis my BFF for life.
If you want to come out and join the fun, my girl Sasha (Sasha is The Blonde Confetti on Instagram) and I are doing a Town Center takeover this afternoon to put together some fun holiday looks and maybe find something festive to wear tonight. Come join us or just follow along on IG stories.
Speaking of What to Wear
If you're into fashion and wondering about the attire for today's festive events...it's festive casual. I always dress up just a little because it's what I do, but wear what makes you happy and comfortable. Or arrive a few minutes early, survey the crowd and pop into your favorite Town Center store to grab something new to fit the vibe. (Listen, you're here. I'll show you how to spend money. No problem. Insert the cash money eye emoji here.)
Need More Details?
Remember to look for the fabulous Town Center and Simon team working their magic tonight. If you see them tell them you love them and thank you. (You can leave out the love part if you so desire, but it's the holiday season so spread some love and cheer.)
Happy Holidays, babes! We hope to see you tonight!
