Holly Jolly Shopping Spree 2017
Saturday, November 18, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The 8th Annual Holly Jolly Shopping Spree is a special tour of the Uptown San Marco shops and restaurants during the day of Saturday, November 18, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Later that evening, the Nights of Lights Lighting Ceremony will take place at the Plaza de la Constitución in the Historic District, when the Mayor flips the switch to turn on the three million lights of this world-renowned spectacle of holiday lighting displays.
The Holly Jolly Shopping Spree tour begins at the Old Jail at 167 San Marco Avenue, just north of downtown St. Augustine, where Carrera Wine Cellar will host their Sparkling Soirée from 9 to 10 a.m., with complimentary sparkling wine. From there, guests will catch a trolley for a special tour of shopping in the Uptown San Marco area, with stops at participating retailers. Raintree Restaurant provides the delicious lunch included in the tour, where tour members have a chance to win raffle prizes (sponsored by Spanish Dutch Convoy Leather Goods & Bags) and bid on silent auction items.
This year, a portion of the proceeds will be used to award scholarships to “Ancient City Explorers (ACE)” an interactive history camp for elementary school students. ACE is a program offered by the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum.
