The 2018 Christmas Parade and Gala were a success

This year’s Christmas Committee had lots of changes to both Christmas Lighted parade and the Snow Gala!

The line-up and staging was done for the first time in a new location but all in all the Parade Chair Ana Martinez did a wonderful job! This was her first time trying out a new schedule for location of the parade

The Chamber of Commerce is hoping the entire community enjoyed both events immensely.

“The Immokalee Chamber of Commerce President Danny Gonzalez and the Board of Director’s would like to wish the community of Ave Maria, Immokalee, and the surrounding areas, the Chamber sponsors, volunteers, Parks and Recreation, a Happy and Safe Merry Christmas.”

This year’s Snow Gala was both beautiful and interesting….

Santa was a little late on his arrival… he lost his way from the North Pole with his reindeer’s, while desperately trying to get to all the boys and girls of Immokalee. He finally arrived in the helicopter from The Collier County EMS Service.

From the Christmas around the World Parade and The Snow Gala Committee and The Collier County Sheriff Office committee members… on behalf of the community of Immokalee, The Immokalee Chamber of Commerce, gives Thanks to everyone for their time and efforts with these wonderful events.
