It’s that time of the year when the majority of the country is snowed in, miserable, and cooped up watching Christmas specials on T.V. Unlike the 47 states that actually experience season change (Hawaii and California, you’re omitted from this list), Florida is always ready to party in scandalous outfits, no matter what the holiday.

Indulging in this is South Florida, more specifically Wilton Manors. Here are some fun holiday parties happening this month.


Rumor’s Third Annual Santa Sip N Strut

Rumor has it that a party is going on, and you're invited. Attendees decked in holiday decor will parade down Wilton Drive. Featured will be food, drinks, prizes and more. This will occur on Sunday, December 17 from noon until 6 p.m. Rumors Bar & Grill is located at 2426 Wilton Dr. in Wilton Manors. Call 954-565-8851 or visit


Christmas Tree Skirt Promenade

The Pub’s third annual Christmas Tree Skirt Promenade will inspire you to act like a tree and wear a skirt. Some examples include tutus, kilts, or even an actual tree skirt. This event is on Friday, December 15 from 7 to 10 p.m. The Pub - Wilton Manors is located at 2283 Wilton Dr. in Wilton Manors. Call (754) 200-5244 or visit


The Manor’s Annual Christmas Ball and Santa’s Christmas

The Manor will be hosting not one, but two Christmas events this year. Friday, December 22 will feature their annual Christmas ball with performances by the Bubblegum Divas as well as dancers. The next day on Saturday, Dec 23, the man in the red suit will have his own party called Santa’s Christmas. There will be Christmas performances and free professional pictures with Santa and his helpers. Both parties start at 11 p.m. The Manor is located at 2345 Wilton Dr. in Wilton Manors.
