ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla. — 'Tis the season to be overextended and busy with holiday events. But here are 5 fun things to do this weekend anyway.

#1 - Holiday Libations

  • Hidden away at the Wyndham Grand Jupiter At Harbourside Place is the Lobby Lounge filled with upside Christmas Trees, theme nights like Ugly Sweater Wednesdays, and craft cocktails sure to tantalize the taste buds. The bartenders even wear Get Lit ugly Christmas sweaters.
  • In Delray, the Christmas pop-up bar is back at Death or Glory Bar. Christmas explodes on every inch of the converted 100-year-old home. Enjoy tacky holiday mugs, decorations, and more.

#2 - The Polar Express

The themed train is back on the Brightline starting on Saturday, Dec. 11. The adventure of this holiday classic comes to life when the festive Brightline train departs for a journey led by a cast of talented actors.

FYI... This year, trains depart from Miami for the experience only.

#3 - Community Events

"There are all kinds of food trucks out there, beverages exhibitors, there's, you know, ice skating for the kids, but it's all family demographics, so you can bring the little ones, we bring them on stage with me and they dance and believe it or not, they know Ice Ice Baby even though they weren't born," giggled Vanilla Ice.
