Santa Claus is coming to town! The Lake Nona Town Center is being transformed into the winter wonderland of your dreams with everything you would expect in a traditional white Christmas … and yes, that means snow!
Lake Nona has announced its plans for Christmas – prepare to be as excited as your kids will be! You will be immersed in the holiday spirit with one of Central Florida’s only open-air skating rinks, holiday movies, Christmas trees, and dazzling, festive lights. Also, a special holiday program is designed for Lake Nona’s five-story interactive landmark, The Beacon.
The Town Center will be infused with holiday cheer in every way. Holiday carolers will fill the air with sounds of joy, and occasional pine-scented snow flurries will certainly put a smile on everyone’s face. If you’ve been nice this year, get your letters to Santa ready and drop them off at Santa’s mailbox. You can always give your letter to the jolly man in person as he will make an appearance nightly!
A wide selection of food and beverages will be available along with traditional holiday treats like roasted chestnuts and the classic mulled wine. Of course, the Lake Nona Town Center restaurants like Chroma Modern Bar + Kitchen, Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine, and the recently-opened Park Pizza Brewing & Co. are options as well.
If you still haven’t taken your holiday photo for this year, you are welcome to take photos of your own with Santa or use the professional photographer available at the venue.
This is a truly exceptional effort to add some extra sparkle to Christmas this year in Lake Nona. We look forward to seeing everyone there! Merry Christmas to all who observe this joyous holiday!
