Billy Claus arrives at LuLu’s Destin in grand style

Special to The Log
Billy Claus, Santa’s brother from the Caribbean, arrived via sea plane to greet hundreds of waiting kids.

Billy Claus is Santa’s brother who lives in the Caribbean. He was greeted by hundreds of smiling and waving kids as he arrived via sea plane at LuLu’s Destin restaurant this past weekend.

Accompanied by the LuLuBelles, owner Lucy Buffett was also on hand to read her book, Billy Claus and the Spirit of Christmas Island. As well, there was music and plenty of kid’s Holiday arts and crafts projects.

Kids lined up to sit on Billy Claus’ lap and relay their gift wish list so Billy could let his brother know. There was a letter station for kids to write to Santa that Billy would also take to his brother. The LuLuBelles, akin to Santa’s elves, spread Christmas cheer throughout the afternoon.

There was not a better way to kick off the Holiday season than a day spent with family, friends, and Billy Claus with his LuLuBelles for a one-of-a-kind experience at LuLu’s.

LuLu’s is located in Destin at the foot of the Mid Bay Bridge, next to Legendary Marina. For more information, visit or call 710-5858.
