The mission of the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is to develop, promote and sustain a vital, thriving business climate throughout the community and to initiate, support and enhance the civic, educational and economic well-being of the area.
There’s something magical about Winter Park during the holidays. I hope you’ll join us for one of our spectacular traditions, including the City of Winter Park’s “Winter in the Park” holiday ice rink (now through Jan. 10), the Morse Museum’s “Christmas in the Park,” (Dec. 3) or the Bach Festival Society’s “Young At Heart” Christmas Concert (Dec. 15th).
The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is proud to introduce a new holiday tradition. The inaugural Winter on the Avenue, presented by Westminster Winter Park on Friday, Dec. 4, kicks off at the holiday tree lighting ceremony with WFTV’s Bob Opsahl, followed by a caroling procession along Park Avenue, visits with Santa Claus, a Popcorn Flick in Central Park, holiday jazz, a merchant open house and more! Festivities run from 5-10 p.m.
The next morning, Park Avenue comes to life at 9 a.m. at the 63rd Annual Winter Park “Ye Olde Hometown” Christmas Parade, presented by Bright House Networks. More than 100 holiday-themed floats, bands and, of course, Santa Claus, march down Park Avenue spreading holiday cheer to the young and young at heart.
Before and after the parade, Leadership Winter Park Class 26 hosts the 17th Annual Leadership Winter Park Pancake Breakfast, presented by Fannie Hillman + Associates and Florida Power & Light, at the Central Park main stage from 7-10:30 a.m. Enjoy hot pancakes, sausage and beverages for just $6 per adult and $4 per child.
