Join us in Downtown Orlando on the first Sunday in December for a holiday celebration that will draw thousands of Central Florida residents to Lake Eola Park called, HOLIDAY IN THE PARK.
Corporate Tent Sponsors and Pet-Related businesses will be set-up in the park near the Amphitheater to meet and greet guests throughout the day. A new addition to the Festival this year will be a line-up of gourmet food trucks located on Rosalind Avenue. Pet owners will be registering for the REED NISSAN JINGLE BELL DOG JOG scheduled to step-off in the Downtown streets before the start of the annual ORLANDO CHRISTMAS PARADE. Santa and his merry gang of high school marching bands will have thousands of parade-goers dancing in their seats from 2:00pm to 7:30pm as they circle Historic Lake Eola and Thornton Park. Thousands of new white LED lights will be added to the trees in the park to create a winter wonderland for all to enjoy. Parade Sponsors and Park Vendors are currently being sought to assure the success of all planned activities.
