Wekiva Island’s beloved Winter Wonderland is back from Dec. 1-25, 2023. The holiday tradition brings sparkling holiday décor, thousands of twinkling lights, “snow” flurries and a calendar packed with events at Wekiva Island.
New this year is Santa’s Workshop, which will take up residence in the Island’s upstairs art gallery. The space will be fully decorated and buzzing with holiday fun, including activities for the kids and the chance to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
In addition to the fun, Wekiva Island will take part in the spirit of giving with a toy drive for Kids House of Seminole. Guests can bring new, unwrapped toys to Wekiva Island from Nov. 24 to Dec. 5, and all of them will be delivered to Kids House to be given to kids in Seminole County. Kids House will also be on site at the tree lighting on Dec. 1 collecting gifts.
Winter Wonderland is open to the public. Admission is $5 on Saturday and Sunday, which includes visits with Santa, face painting and glitter tattoo artists. Other events might require separate tickets and advanced registration.
