Christmas in Victoria Park

When it comes to Christmas in Naples, everyone knows that Victoria Park is the place to go to enjoy the decorations. I’ve posted just a couple of photos, but if you haven’t been by to see them, there’s still time this year. Be sure to put it on your schedule for next year. Enjoy.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a great New Year!
