Now that we are in a Christmassy state of mind, how about going out for an awesome night of hot chocolate, infinite light decors, and all things festive? Winter Festival is happening in Tallahassee soon and will turn the Downtown into an enchanting Christmas wonderland. Magic will be everywhere for a whole night.
The next December 7 from 3:00 to 10:00 p.m. the city will be filled with joy and sparkling holiday displays. The event is so popular that it draws more than 100,000 people to the heart of the city every year. The most awesome part of the festival is the traditional activities, starting with the Lighting Ceremony that will take place at 6:00 p.m.
"Winter Festival, a Celebration of Lights, Music and the Arts” will also feature a super cool Nightime Holiday Parade full of decorated trolleys, dancing groups, festive music, and holiday characters. The parade starts at 7:15 p.m. from N. Monroe St. at Tennessee St. and End at S. Monroe St. at Madison St.
There is also the Candy Cane Lane where you can enjoy a stroll through McCarty Park, embracing the sights and sounds of the holiday season.
If you are planning on going with the family, there will be a Children's Activity Area were the tiny ones at home can get busy with hands-on arts and crafts along with live entertainment. This will happen at Kleman Plaza - 200 S. Duval St.
