Festivals, Follies, and Fall

David and Donna- Thanksgiving

The weather is cooling off, and in Florida, fall is a big deal! If you’ve grown up in Florida like I have or are a local to New Smyrna Beach you know we count down the days until fall. There’s no better place to be in November than the town of NSB! NSB Homes, located off Canal St., stays busy this time of year. There are so many fun festivals and activities that we can’t wait to get outdoors and explore!

The Fall weather sets the tone for holidays around the corner.  Even though I love living in New Smyrna Beach, I’m also a mountain girl and enjoy getting up to the cabin in North Carolina to see the colors change.  Since the only thing that

Fall in NSB

changes at the beach is the tide getting higher, I look forward to the festivals this time of year to get me in the holiday spirit!

Flamingo Follies



One of my favorites is The Flamingo Follies on Flagler Ave. in NSB. This annual Art Show fetures over 120 artisans and crafters from around the state of Florida.  Artists and food vendors will line Flagler Avenue from 9 am to 5 pm Saturday and Sunday.  I love shopping for new decor to put in the office at NSB Homes.  Stop by and see what I found!  Nothing says Happy Holidays in New Smyrna Beach like a flamingo in a Santa hat!


The crisp air inspires me to get outdoors and explore parts of Florida I love, like Weeki Wachi Springs.  The beautiful clear springs are the perfect place to paddle board, downstream of course!  If you’re looking for a little outdoor adventure this Fall check out this paddleboard tour with OmSunshine on Nov. 20th.

The absolute best way to get into the holiday spirit, and one my favorite things each year, is The Images Holiday Tour Parade of Homes.  You get to see some of the most unique homes decorated for the holidays and showcasing the charm of

New Smyrna Beach.  Ticket sales go to raising money for the IMAGES Art Festival, a great way to support local artists!
