Come soak up some holiday-season sunshine on a getaway to Hotel Cabana and take advantage of Tampa Bay’s rich lineup of holiday events! Here’s some of the family-friendly festivities on planned for this year.
Immerse yourself in a dazzling holiday-scape at the Florida Botanical Gardens! From Friday, November 29 through Saturday, January 4, the annual Holiday Lights in the Garden installation showcases roughly a million LED lights to get visitors in the spirit of the time of year. There’ll be regular visits from Santa, plus food, drink, gifts for sale, and more.
More holiday lights await you in Largo Central Park on Saturday, December 7, with the Holiday Stroll kicking off at 5 PM. There’ll be food and drink vendors, plus the perfect place to check off some of those friends and loved ones on your shopping list: the Strolling Market (which runs from 4 to 9 PM). At 6 PM, there’ll be a tree-lighting as well. Carolers will be among the Holiday Stroll’s live entertainment.
The 37th annual Jingle Bell Run, which supports the efforts of St. Petersburg’s Boley Centers and fights against stigmas around mental health, goes down Friday, December 13, with numerous live bands, DJ sets, glow zones, glow-in-the-dark face painting, and other fun. The main event is the three-mile-long family fun run, open not only to runners and joggers but also walkers (and dogs!).
One of the area’s top yearly festivals, the Clearwater Holiday Lighted Boat Parade sees some spectacularly decorated vessels flare up the nearshore waters with yuletide glam and glitter. This year’s edition takes place around 8:30 PM on Saturday, December 14, with the boats filing past Coachman Park, slipping under the Memorial Causeway Bridge, and weaving their merry way through canals to Clearwater Point. Viewing is free.
