Siesta Key Village will also gear up for the holiday season on Saturday with its 29th annual Light Up The Village. The Village will be decked out in full holiday splendor with the Christmas tree lighting taking place at the Gazebo, located at Ocean Blvd. and Canal Road. Santa Claus will arrive on a float in the newly expanded holiday parade which will begin at Avenida del Mare and Beach Road and travel north on Beach Road onto Ocean Blvd. into the Village. Many businesses and local groups will be participating in the parade and welcoming Santa to Siesta Village. There will be gifts for the first 250 kids to visit Santa as well as a host of family activities, refreshments and holiday bargains at shops and restaurants in the Village.
