Christmas Comes to Boca Grande

Alexa Johnson



The holiday season kicked off with a bang as Gulf to Bay Sotheby's International Realty participated in the Annual Holiday Walk. Organized by the Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce, downtown businesses came together to host residents, friends and family for a fun filled evening on November 25th, 2023. 

Our office re-created Boca Grande out of gingerbread, poured sugar, and lots of frosting! In addition they prepared charcuterie cups and dipped over 200 pretzel rods in Ghirardelli chocolate and served a signature cocktail to guests.

The Boca Grande Tree lighting took place on December 3rd, 2023. Hosted by the Boca Grande Women's Club this event featured a live nativity, the lighting of the tree, and Christmas Carols sung by the Women's Club and featured the Royal Palm Players.

The following week, December 10th, 2023, the Annual Lighting of the Lighthouse took place. Hosted by the Barrier Island Parks Society, this event was held at the Boca Grande Lighthouse and Museum. It featured Christmas Carols sung by Rob Rolleri and a silent auction to raise money for the work done by the Barrier Island Parks Society.

And last but not least, the Gasparilla Inn has been decorating inside and out in anticipation for their annual 12 Days of Christmas event. It's always a special time at the Inn for locals and guests who come to celebrate. It's not too late to make reservations for the Inn's holiday teas, feasts, and more!
