Christmas at Town Center, Concerts in Town Center

Local Charlie Walker & Kelli Picker at the Holiday Spectacular


Singer and songwriter Charlie Walker didn’t set out on the road to music, but after navigating many twists and turns along the way, he realized he was on the right path all along. “I don’t know if there is just one path,” he says. “I think there are different paths you can follow to get to a certain spot.” It was an interesting journey for the Jacksonville Beach-based musician, who started playing music in a Christian band at 19 before finally finding his voice on the mainstream stage.

 

For the grand finale, Santa will be in the middle of Jacksonville Town Center. He’ll start the official countdown to light the dazzling 32-foot tree and kick off an energetic fireworks finale.

His charismatic showmanship has allowed Walker to become a highly recognized and respected staple in the Jacksonville Beach music community. “I think if you are a good person, and if you care about people and treat businesses with integrity, I think that anyone can have a good experience,” he says. “All of the people that I have become close to in the business community…just want respect, for you to be on time. You’re worth the drinks you sell. That is the best advice I have ever been given.
