Oh, What Fun it is to Celebrate the Holidays!

A Story By

Grab your deer ones and head to Lake Nona for the holiday festival: Oh, What FUN!

The 4th annual festival transforms Lake Nona Town Center into the full winter-wonderland of Peppermint Square for the holidays.

Dress in your holiday best and head out to experience nightly snowfalls (in FLORIDA!), live entertainment for the whole fam, and an explosion of holiday decor at every corner.

Want to know before you go? Grab your ugly sweater and prepare for these holiday activities—

The 24-ft. Christmas Tree and The Peppermint Forest

Centered in the middle of Peppermint Square, the 24-ft. Christmas tree is surrounded by a cast of characters looking forward to spreading holiday cheer! Take holiday photos from 5—11 PM, or just revel in awe of the spectacular holiday centerpiece!

Ciro & Sons have done the work for you—now all the best holiday trees are at the Peppermint Forest for the picking! Located next to Boxi Park, you can also order tree valet and home delivery service for convenience!

Family-friendly Activities for Everyone

The holidays can get messy—but at the Kid‘s Craft Village, you can let your children loose to go crazy-creative for the holidays! In this kids-designated area at Lake Nona Town Center, your little ones can design homemade ornaments, gingerbread houses, and so much more to take home for the holidays!

You can also get your holiday shopping done at Oh, What Fun! gift stations, featuring toys, mugs, and so much more! 

If you‘re not into shopping on an empty stomach, stop by the Kringle‘s Café, The Confectionary or Christmas Carol‘s Café for a bite to eat!
