PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla — You may be getting a little stir crazy and scratching your head on what to this weekend while still keeping your distance.

1) Christmas In July - Jupiter

Santa is bringing his elves and sleigh to the Jupiter Heights neighborhood Saturday. He is helping Little Smiles kick off their annual Holiday Toy Drive by hosting a parade. There will be live music, bubbles, free candy canes, and a float. Kids can come outside with the Christmas PJs on if they can donate a toy that will be given to needy and sick kids during Christmas. The parade will start at 10 a.m. on Heights Blvd and Linton St. FYI, Santa will not come off the float and the elves are practicing social distancing to set a good example for others. So you can leave your present on the ground and the Elves will pick it up.
