The trees aren't the only things getting lit

Head on over to Springfield to dance the night away to DANKA, for Music on Main as well as a Tree Lighting Ceremony and the Holiday Kick-off Celebration for the neighborhood! Bring a blanket or chair and enjoy some of Jacksonville’s favorite local food vendors! Food and drink purchases start at 5:30pm and the band will start at 6:00pm.

If you aren’t familiar with Music on Main, this is the perfect opportunity to see what all the dancing and celebrating is about. It began as a celebration of Springfield’s 150th birthday and continues on into 2021 for the 3rd year. We love to see it.

Light it up this weekend

It’s finally that time of year again where Jacksonville Beach activates their holiday spirit and lifeguard chairs come to life! This is one of our favorite events that happen every year at Jacksonville Beach and SURPRISE, we have our own chair this year!

Deck the Chairs not only has a beautiful light display from sundown to 1:00am every night but there is also a Seasongs Light & Music Spectacle every weekend.

Seasongs is a one-of-a-kind, motion-activated holiday sound experience featuring a 140-foot custom-fabricated exhibit that is designed to play a variety of musical chords through visitor interaction! This exhibit is and is programmed for nightly light shows during the season.

You don’t want to miss this annual light show! (Make sure to tag us in your selfies with our UNATION chair located in front of the concessions stand and to vote for us)
