IMG_2304Over 6,000 were thrilled by Christmas Near The Beach last year and 2015 is projected to snowball into the best year yet. The 9th Annual Christmas Near The Beach is set for Dec. 12, 2015 at the Arts Park @ Young Circle in Hollywood, FL. As always our festival is FREE!  St. Nick is arriving in style on a classic car led by the Florida Sunshine Marching band. “I look forward to this event every year! Our entire family has made this our Christmas tradition.” -Christine McClain, Pembroke Pines, FL.  All families are offered a free photo with the jolly ole guy on his sleigh and a walk through his beach house.
Bring a lawn chair, arrive early and stay late! Experience that hometown flare Florida style. Our lineup includes bands, choirs, mime, drama, a Christmas ballet, Grinchy on skates,  and a one time rehearsal for NEXT year’s attempt at a spot in the Guinness Book of World records! (Most people caroling.)  DJ Mr. E keeps the crowd energized throughout the show! Bands include, Sensere, Josh Bramos, The Anchor collective and Lighthouse Creative.  A family friendly event with a hometown feel greets each guest. “The entire South Florida community will feel at home in Hollywood. Our city brings the charm of the season where our party is your party, because it’s like you’re joining me in my living room, with my closest 6,000 friends.”-Deena McDaniel, CNTB director/producer. Children will also be entertained with a kids zone, sports zone as well as a puppet show.

This year CTNB is hosting a community food drive. Bring a can of food and help a  family have a sweet Christmas season. For every 3 cans donated you receive a free raffle ticket.  Open Heart Food Pantry hosts the collection. They serve 60 to 120 families each week year round supplying food for families, plus helping stock 4 different locations.
Christmas Near The Beach offers a  free raffle ticket to those who visit St. Nick at his Beach house and one family will walk away with St. Nick’s personal Christmas tree! Visit the website for the extensive contest prize list, which totals over $2000.

The stage is set for another Christmas celebration where memories will be made for a lifetime. Christmas Near The Beach is a project of Expressions of Joy a 501-C3 Not-for-Profit.
