Oh, What Fun! Holiday Festival

December 7, 2023 @ 12:00 pm December 23, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Lake Nona’s
Oh, What Fun! Holiday Festival
Returns this December

This December, Lake Nona Town Center will unveil a winter wonderland like no other.

Get ready to step into the whimsical Peppermint Square at the heart of the town, where the free Oh, What Fun! Holiday Festival promises to dazzle and delight families on select nights from December 7 to 23.

Here, the traditional Santa photo is reimagined. Families avoid the long lines and enjoy a cozy, personalized visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus in their charming winter cottage. This experience, available through advance booking, promises a relaxed and intimate setting for story time, songs and photo opportunities, perfect for making lifetime memories.

The festival will also host a Hanukkah celebration on December 7th, with a menorah lighting to kick things off. But the fun doesn’t stop there, Peppermint Square will be filled with festive fun every Friday-Sunday, featuring nightly snowfalls, live entertainment including bands, carolers, school showcases and captivating shows like high-flying acrobatics.

Adding to the festive atmosphere, stroll through the glittering Evergreen Tree Trail and visit the Fa La La La Bar at the Lake Nona Wave Hotel for a holiday-themed adult beverage.

Lively entertainment will extend to Boxi Park and for a touch of modern magic, don’t miss the Peppermint Forest VR Experience, an augmented reality adventure with Peppermint the Penguin at Verse Orlando, next to Boxi Park.
