Christmas Around the World is a community sponsored event. Activities include a lighted night pa­rade followed by a Christmas Snow Gala at the community Aquatic Center with lots of food, games, music and machine-­produced snow. Entertainment includes Immokalee's home-grown singers, dancers and this year, the "Best Dressed Hollywood Themes Costume Competition." The highlight of the Christmas Gala is the Grand Finale of the arrival of Santa Claus from the North Pole via helicopter.

We've noticed that Santa looks a lot like one of the Healthcare Network's board members!
