This time of year, our calendars start filling up with holiday festivities, such as gift exchanges, tree and Menorah lightings, holiday musicals, galas and fundraisers, and of course — visits with Santa Claus. Sometimes, Santa can be hard to track down during his busiest time of year! Take a look at the many appearances he is making throughout the holiday season in the Fort Lauderdale area. From photo opps to parades, here are a handful of ways to catch a glimpse of (or even hold a conversation with!) the most popular character of the holiday season.

Stay after 5 p.m. for Garden of Lights, featuring tens of thousands of lights decorating the arboretum and Wray Home, holiday scenes adorning the garden pathways, and a spectacular musical light show.
