The weekend is here again and holiday activities are still in full swing. If you haven’t been able to get out before now, don’t worry, you still have time.
This past weekend we visited the Johnson Family Holiday Light Extravaganza in St. Cloud. It features a walk-through light village that they put together every year to raise funds to buy toys for kids at Nemours Children’s Hospital. Not only are you able to see some lights, but they also have free hot chocolate and a roaring fire with the fixins to make s’mores. The only cost is a donation. The kids really enjoyed it and even wanted to go through twice. This event is still taking place, so you can head on over this weekend or next or during the week if you have time.
We also moseyed on down to Celebration for their Now Snowing! event last weekend as well. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see the snow, but we did see the rain! Before the rain came down we watched some local performers put on a Christmas performance and we went on the train ride. The train cost $5 per person, but it was totally worth it. It took us on a decently long ride around Celebration and we were able to see a lot of houses all lit up. My 8-year old would give it two thumbs up. There were also wagon rides and carriage rides that you could go on. The Cinderella carriage was one of the most popular options. This event is still taking place and goes on until New Year’s.
In addition to the above-mentioned activities, there are a bunch of Christmas activities taking place in Orlando this weekend. You can go for a ride on the Polar Express, participate in a Reindeer Run, take in a Christmas Show. If you want to see lights, then head over to Deck the Downtown or to Lake Eola park for the Wonderland Christmas Tree Show.
For information on even more events taking place this weekend and for the rest of the holidays, make sure to check out our Event Calendar.
Let us know where you end up this weekend with the kiddos. We also love to see pics of Orlando families out and about.
