Who needs snow to have a fun Christmas?
The Treasure Coast area cleans up nicely for the holiday with festive light displays and exhibits for a Treasure Coast in Lights.
From neighborhood lights that challenge the best shows in the state to city-sponsored light festivals, the area has something to help everyone enjoy the holiday season.
PSL in Lights
As locals decorate for the holidays, the annual citywide challenge to find the best Christmas light displays is on!
Neighborhoods across the city will put forth their best step in creating amazing Christmas light displays, from choreographed displays to animatronics, PSL in Lights will shine brightly.
Register for the best in the city campaign, as well as register your home for the bus tours. Bus tours for neighborhood light displays? Of course.
And not just bus tours; cars and other vehicles will drive through the area, taking in the impressive lights. Locals can also vote for their favorite light displays. Of course, the city will offer maps with favorite Christmas light displays.
Winter Wonderland Light Show
You’re invited to visit the Port St. Lucie Community Center for a “one-of-a-kind” light show Dec. 1-31.
With hundreds of lights adorning the community center as well as decorated trees, the nightly Winter Wonderland Light Show features twinkling lights choreographed to holiday music, such as the well-known “Peanuts” show “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
While you likely won’t see the lonely Christmas tree little Chuck picked out for the holidays, you will see hundreds of Christmas lights dancing and lighting up the night sky.
People often combine visiting the community center with a tour of the city’s neighborhood light shows.
