What to do in Seminole Heights this weekend! 12.17.21

On the 9th day before Christmas… Yikes!!! Only one more weekend to find those last minute items. Might I suggest shopping local so you can avoid delivery delays. Plus it helps out community. Please check out our small business shopping guide again for places to find gifts locally at BTW, most local restaurants have gift cards as well! Go and check out all the fun events happening in and around the Heights Community this weekend! Have fun!

Happening on December 18th along the Riverwalk, Seddon Channel & Sparkman’s Wharf features dozens of boats lighted for the season with accompanied music!
