Jolly Good Times near Arden

It’s that time of year! Time to dust off the decorations, whip up your favorite holiday recipes and visit with family and friends. It’s a busy time of year, with annual festivals, parades and decorations making an appearance once more. With so many festivities taking place throughout Palm Beach County, it can be hard to know where to start. To make things a little easier, here are the top five seasonal events that we’re most excited about, all just a short drive from Arden.

Snowfall on the Plaza

Is there anything more romantic than walking hand-in-hand under twinkle lights and lightly falling snow? Plan a date night to CityPlace in West Palm Beach to witness the nightly snowfall during the holiday season. Get in some shopping, have a quiet dinner and then enjoy a rare quiet moment strolling with your honey.
