PORT ST. MAARTEN – Christmas is coming to Walter Plantz Square (WPS) at Down Street on Friday afternoon, December 8 at Happy Hour.  Come out and join the Lighting of the Annual Christmas tree at WPS at 7.00pm. End your week by kicking-off the holiday season celebration at WPS.

This is the third year that WPS will be lighting the Christmas tree as well as the square with festive holiday lights for the season. It’s a time to reflect and give gratitude in the post-Irma era.

While visiting WPS, don’t forget to patronize one of several restaurants at the square: Irie Garden (vegetarian), Layback Bar & Restaurant (creole), and the Oranje Café.

Make WPS a place to visit this holiday season and beyond.  It is a great location for visitors, family and friends to hang out through the week or weekends.

Since its establishment a few years ago, the Walter Plantz Square at Down Street has generated a new spirit of life into the area for locals and visitors alike.

The square is strategically located next to the Walter Plantz Tender Jetty which connects to the boardwalk/beach promenade, Down Street and Front Street, and allows for a broader distribution flow of passengers.
