Holiday Scene: Holiday Pics From Around the Keys

Santa arrived in a different mode of transportation on Dec. 15 in Islamorada. Children waited in anticipation as Santa came into Bass Pro Shop’s World Wide Sportsman via the U.S. Coast Guard. The little ones greeted Santa as he stepped onto the dock. Following his arrival, kids got a chance to relay their Christmas wishes, get pictures and venture around the store.

From Duval Street to North Roosevelt, ’tis the season for the biggest, brightest, most bizarre and bejeweled light displays, as only the Southernmost City can deliver. The Conch Tour Train and Old Town Trolley both offer tours of the competitors around town, and residents participate in a little friendly competition. The winners of the holiday light competition this year were: 1st place to 503 Washington Street (Key West Mayor Teri Johnston and partner Dar Castillo), 2nd to 1520 Catherine Street, and 3rd to 2400 Seidenberg Ave. Johnston and Castillo donated the $500 first place prize to the Boys and Girls Club. The winning homes feature sparkling unicorns, shooting stars, illuminated peace signs and trippy rainbow trees. Stop by and see the sparkle … and if you’re feeling competitive, enter your house next year.
