It's an Orlando Holiday Celebration at Lake Eola Park

December 02, 2019

To be in Orlando during the holiday season is a wonderful thing! The entire city is lit up from corner to corner and there are festive events happening all month long. If your travel schedule does bring you to the magical city of Orlando during the month of December, it is essential that you attended the annual tree lighting celebration in Lake Eola Park. This beloved tree stands seventy-two feet tall into the sky and is decorated with bright green lights and sparkly decorations—but the most unique part is that it's surrounded by Florida’s iconic palm trees. This year's festival will be held on Friday, December 6th, and the city encourages its guests to use alternative modes of transportation such as ride-sharing and the Sun-Rail. Get in the holiday spirit while singing along to the live performers, enjoying the local vendors, and indulging in some of Orlando's favorite food trucks all night long.
