December 6-7, 2008 Holiday Events - Things to Do

Forgive me for not getting this information to you sooner. I had a lovely message all put together and linked up with great things to do in Bonita Springs, Florida this coming weekend and then the bull got in the china shop.

Lumberjack came over to celebrate 6-4’s birthday. Yeah, it’s 6-4 now, he grew an inch. Anywho, Lumberjack asked to use my computer to research guns and ammo or something and unbeknownst to me until a day or so later he closed a few windows. Important windows, to documents I was writing, for the blog, for the book, for the news paper. Shamefully, I had not saved some of the updates.

I can feel my pulse in my ears right now and I’m sure that where ever you are in the US of A, you can probably hear it, too.

Now I’m tired, but I still want you to get this info so you’re getting the Cliff notes version:

1. Bonita Springs Tree Lighting – Holiday in The Park will be held at Riverside Park along Old 41 Road on Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2008 from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. The event will include the annual Tree Lighting, the arrival of Santa Clause, child activities, musical performances, food and beverages.

2. Bonita Springs Holiday Fest Saturday December 6, 2008 is big. First there is an event at Sunshine Plaza put on by the Morning Rotary. It is a Holiday event from 12-4:00pm. Santa shows up at 2:00pm. Christmas trees are for sale, also. Click for a Printable Flyer.

3. The Bonita Springs Boat Parade isJust a few hours later at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday December 6, 2008. Look for me, I’ll be the one selling glow necklaces for safety.

4. Holiday Party For Pets is last but not least on Sunday December 7, 2008 at 2:00 pm.

The event, held at the Ben & Jerry's in The Promenade at Bonita Bay, benefits the Animal Refuge Center. People who attend are asked to bring something to donate to ARC - a blanket, food, toys or an old towel or two. Donations are being accepted from local businesses as raffle prizes, too. There’s also going to be finger foods by Roy’s and such.

I am now saving this file and uploading it to the site before Lumberjack comes back.

Enjoy your weekend Bonita Springs.
