Thousands of white lights cascade up the Christmas tree lighting The Shops at Amelia Island Plantation during the annual Holiday Celebration. Held the Friday after Thanksgiving, the annual tree lighting on Amelia Island will once again kick of the holiday season on November 23 from 5-8pm!

Benefiting Take Stock in Children, the festive event is a local favorite in Fernandina Beach. This year, families can enjoy holiday stilt walkers and characters, pictures with Santa Clause by Boston Photography, trolley train rides, a bounce house, cookie decorating, crafts in Santa’s workshops and of course the anticipated Amelia Island Christmas tree lighting!
