Make sure to put the 37th Annual Holiday Night of Lights on your to-do list this season.

Mark your calendars, gather your friends and plan ahead by making your dinner reservations early because you don’t want to miss the way St. Armands Circle celebrates the holidays!
You can enjoy the wonder and beauty of thousands of twinkling lights and amazing decorations while you walk the circle and enjoy the shops. Merchants and restaurateurs will be in full holiday salute with generous sales and special offerings. The Sarasota High School Theater/Drama Department’s Chamber Choir and Swing Group, and the Cuban Ballet will be on hand to entertain and infuse the evening with music, dance and song. The Santa Parade will escort the guest of honor, Santa, in for the rest of the evening’s festivities.
The beauty of St. Armands Circle is one of the reasons it’s a highly coveted destination for locals and knowing tourists. Just the drive there, crossing the John Ringling Bridge and seeing the sparkling waters of Sarasota Bay and the immensely beautiful Lido Key up ahead, instantly brings a sense of peace and calm. And in the height of the holiday season, when crowds are thick and tensions are high, the stores and waterside location of St. Armands Circle provide a peaceful backdrop for shopping and dining. The area evokes a consistent vacation feel without feeling over inundated with tourists or kitschy souvenir shops. For many, this is the definitive place to go for superb shopping, celebratory dining, a must-go-to place for visiting family and friends and just an all-around great place to pass through, if only to end up at the nearby beautiful beaches of Lido Key. If you haven’t been there lately, take this opportunity to enjoy a lovely dinner, some great retail therapy and the celebratory sights and sounds of lively St. Armands Circle. And don’t forget to end the evening with a nod to St. Nick on a warm winter’s night In Sarasota. Enjoy the fantastic tropical holidays in Florida! Find out more here: St. Armands Holiday Lights
