Eau Gallie Arts District Hosts Annual Tree Lighting and Classic Christmas in Eau Gallie Square

The Eau Gallie Arts District is bringing back a classic old town Christmas with its traditional proclamation and lighting of the live Christmas tree, holiday music by the Eau Gallie High School Jazz Band, the Harmonizers, with an introduction by the Suzuki Violin School and Santa will be on hand for children from 1 to 92. Bring your friends and family—and cameras—for a great photo op in our HUMAN SNOW GLOBE sponsored by Slug-a-Bug. Food, beer, wine, “kegnog” and hot chocolate will be available for sale, but the celebration is free and open to the public. Come stroll the shops, galleries and restaurants on historic Highland Avenue which will be lit by luminarias. The festivities begin at 5:30-8:30 pm.

On Saturday, December 6, a luxury bus dubbed the “Basel Bus” will leave Eau Gallie Square at 8 am bound for Miami Beach’s annual ART BASEL, an art show that is as much about people watching as it is about internationally acclaimed art. It’s the best show on Collins Avenue and the bus drops you in the middle of it without any driving or parking woes. Tickets must be purchased in advance at www.baselbus.com. The public price is $60 with discounted pricing for EGAD members and Brevard County art educators.

Also underway is EGAD’s second round of murals beginning December 7 and running for at least one week. Internationally acclaimed muralist based in Los Angeles, Shark Toof, will be painting one of his signature murals on the eastern side of the large building that faces drivers coming off of the Eau Gallie Causeway. Two other murals are being installed are by Kyle Heinly and Dave Thomas with more murals and muralists to be announced. Volunteers are welcome to help pre-paint and other assorted needs during the week and donations are necessary to cover all related expenses. Contact the EGAD office at (321) 574-2737 or email info@eaugalliearts.com. Donations may be sent thru Paypal to the office email; no Paypal account is required. Checks payable to Eau Gallie Arts District (EGAD) Main Street may be mailed to the office at PO Box 360564, Melbourne FL 32936.
