Big Weekend in St. Augustine, Florida

This is a BIG WEEKEND IN ST. AUGUSTINE FLORIDA as the Nation's Oldest City kicks off the holiday season.

First, you'll want to see 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the latest and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, on the giant screen at the World Golf Hall of Fame IMAX.

Then head over to the St. Augustine Amphitheater as Winter Wonderland opens today (November 19th), too! Enjoy the snow without the cold!

Then tomorrow, Saturday, November 20th, is the 17th Annual Nights of Lights and the Mayor's Gala. St. Augustine is literally lit up for the holidays. It is so beautiful.

On Sunday enjoy a Sunset/Moonrise Tour at the St. Augustine Lighthouse. Or, if you are one of my customers, enjoy my annual Customer Appreciation Cruise to see the sunset, moonrise, and Nights of Lights from the Schooner Freedom.

For more details on all of the above and more things to do in St. Augustine this weekend visit St. Augustine Events.

Sounds like a great weekend in in St Augustine. What's weather going to be like up there this weekend? We had a cold snap come through here and it plunged down to 68 degrees.

Barbara:  This sounds like so much fun, I wish I was visiting my friend in St. Augustine this week :(  You do have a beautiful city, and the Nights of Lights sounds like quite an event!

Kathy-weather is perfect ---70. Still laughing at your comment. 

Ellie - I am so thrilled that they keep the lights on through January. They are beautiful.

Bina - The Nights of Lights are so great. That is why I do my Customer Appreciation Cruise so we can see the sunset and the lights come on from the water with a little bubbly and food. It is such a great time.
