Visit Santa Claus in Coral Gables!

Ho Ho Ho,

For the second year, in what will hopefully become a long lasting tradition, Santa Claus has decided to visit the city of Coral Gables prior to his Christmas duties.  Many speculate that Santa is visiting to play a few rounds at our world class golf courses, but actually he is looking to invest in distressed properties, apparently since the world is in a recession his concept of giving away things for free has really caught on.

All kidding aside this is a very cool thing that the city of Coral Gables is doing again this year, you can get full details at the City of Coral Gables website here…well maybe not they have not uploaded the most Recent Coral Gables E-Newsletter to the website yet, but fear not fearless reader!  I’ve got your back!  Waaaaaayyy back!  Sorry I couldn’t resist, here is a summary of the information on Santa Claus 2011 Visit to Coral Gables, I plan to intercept him at numerous venues and take pictures for the TCGB faithfull, then I will be selling them for $50 each 😉 JK here goes the copy…

SPECIAL OFFER: If you do not have time to meet up Santa this year you can send me your kid’s wish list and I will make sure to present it to Santa for his signature in true Realtor fashion, once he signs it he is legally obligated to deliver the gifts, if he does not I have a clause that will allow you to use his sleigh for 1 week.  But seriously if you want your child’s Christmas list signed by Santa send it over and I will make it happen and even take a picture of him signing it!

From the Coral Gables E-Newsletter….
Santa Claus will be riding on a fire truck through the streets of Coral Gables between December 19 and December 22…

Santa and his special helper, Mayor Jim Cason, will ride on a Coral Gables fire truck around the City, on his schedule as listed below, giving out candy canes to all the boys and girls along the route who have been extra good this year.  Listen carefully for the holiday sound of the fire truck. Please remember Santa has many streets to cover and all times are estimated.  Santa will not be able to safely make his way down dead-end streets.  However, if you live on a dead-end street and would like to see Santa, please wait for him on the open-ended corner of your street.

2011 Coral Gables Holiday Spectacular and Tree Lighting

Hello Stuffed Friends,

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I know that I ate to much and that I can’t wait until it happens again next year.  Ohhhhh stuffing you are so good to me!

So now that we have awoken from our turkey induced slumber it is time to look ahead to the final month of the year!  In Coral Gables that means the Coral Gables Holiday Spectacular is approaching which includes the popular tree lighting ceremony.  This year it will take place this coming Friday December 2 at City Hall in Coral Gables right at the beginning of Miracle Mile.  For those of you who are not savvy on the streets it will be at the intersection of SW 24th St and LeJeune Rd (SW 42 Ave).  The event will begin at 5pm and run through 10pm.  The actual tree lighting ceremony will begin at 7pm.

According the The City of Coral Gables E-Newsletter, the event “features food, carnival rides and games, face painting, arts and craft, bounce houses and live musical entertainment by Miami Children’s Theater, Actors’ Playhouse Children Theater, and Maria Verdeja School of the Arts.”

It should be a fantastic night hope to see you there!

The E-Newsletter also had a great pic of a tree from a previous year…

Happy Holidays!

Thanks for Reading!

Joshua T. Reich
