Don't miss the snow for the holidays
Despite the unseasonable cold central Florida is currently experiencing, snow is never in the forecast. Unless someone makes the effort to create their own, that is. In Celebration, someone did.
Every night from now until the New Year, you can experience a true Americana Winter Wonderland. This is the 12th year that Celebration has pulled out all the holiday stops; the holiday party started just after Thanksgiving with a treelighting on November 27, 2010. Visitors have been enjoying a cool Yule ever since.
The event features a number of traditional wintertime entertainments, like ice skating, strolling Charles Dickens Carolers, photos with Santa, and horse drawn carriage rides. But the true spectacle of the event occurs when flakes of cold, sparkling snow flutter gently from the night sky. It happens four times every night, at 6pm, 7pm, 8pm and 9pm.
Wander the town while the snow falls, enjoying your holiday shopping in a picturesque village amidst the twinkling fairy lights. Be sure to stop by one of the wonderful restaurants too, for some holiday treats and maybe a nice hot toddy or two!
