Staff Writer
The Destin Log
Stop by Lulu's in Destin Sunday for a little Christmas fun with Billy Claus and the LuLuBelles. The fun begins at 1 p.m., so be sure to bring the whole family.

Spreading Christmas cheer for all to hear, Billy Claus and the LuLuBelles will make their first debut at LuLu’s in Destin at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 13, so be sure to bring the whole family for a day of fun starting at 1 p.m.

You might be wondering, who is Billy Claus? Well, he is Santa’s warm weather-loving brother. Billy Claus is allergic to snow, and spends most of his time in the Caribbean while helping his busy brother collect toy lists from all the good boys and girls.

The LuLuBelles are Billy’s version of Santa’s elves. They will be on hand to assist Billy during his visit and spread the LuLu’s cheer.

Lucy Buffett, author, chef, restaurateur, and sister of famous crooner Jimmy Buffett, will also be on hand for the Holiday festivities. She will delight boys and girls with the reading of her children’s book, "Billy Claus and the Spirit of Christmas."

Then, at approximately 2 p.m., kids will gather on the sandy beach area at LuLu’s to watch the grand entrance of Billy Claus via seaplane. Upon his arrival, kids can visit with Billy Claus to give him their Holiday gift list so he can relay to his brother, Santa Claus. Each child will receive a small stuffed animal from Billy Claus. Billy and the LuLuBelles will be available for photos with the children.

Throughout the day, there will be children’s arts and crafts activities and a letter station set up for kids to write letters for Billy to take to his brother, Santa Claus.

“I am so looking forward to having Billy Claus and the LuLuBelles at our LuLu’s in Destin,” said Lucy Buffett. “This event is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser for the families and a memory maker for the children.”

In keeping with festive events for families, mark your calendars for LuLu’s 1st Annual Noon Year’s Eve event on Thursday, Dec. 31. Kid-friendly fun for the whole family, there will be excitement around every corner to celebrate and ring in the New Year. The fun starts at 10 a.m. with a sandcastle building contest, arts and crafts, inflatables, face painting, live kid-friendly music by Kathleen Rees & Pelican212, and more.

Noon Year’s Eve is just for the kiddies as they countdown to Noon, with kid-safe “fireworks” and a huge Beach Ball Drop. As always, LuLu’s events are free.

LuLu’s is located in Destin at the foot of the Mid Bay Bridge, next to Legendary Marina. For more Billy Claus and Noon Year’s Eve information, visit www.lulubuffett.com/destin/calendar/special-events or call (850) 710-5858.
