Please come to this annual community gathering of friends and neighbors as we celebrate the season with 55 light displays around a beautiful lake with holiday music to enjoy as you stroll.  The particulars of our event are listed below:

  • Opening Night is Saturday, November 25th, 2023, with festivities beginning at 6:00 PM at Central Park located at 975 Central Avenue, Palm Coast, FL. The City of Palm Coast will hold it’s annual Tree Lighting Ceremony between 6:15-6:30 that night featuring the Mayor of Palm Coast and we will have live music that night. Rotary’s Annual Taste of the Holidays featuring local cuisine will be there if you are hungry and hot chocolate and marshmallow roasting in Santa’s Village.  And it is guaranteed to snow that night!
  • The event continues nightly from 6:30–9:00 PM through December 30th.
  • Every night will feature our 55 animated light displays, music through our speaker system throughout the park, Santa’s Village which has several elf houses for the kids to explore, Santa’s Merry Train Ride nightly (weather permitting), and Santa will be there every Sunday night until Christmas and snow on weekends!  On certain nights, live musical performances will be held on the stage.
  • The City of Palm Coast will have its “Starlight Festival” on Saturday, December 9th.  This night will include stationary floats around the perimeter of Park Street, Lake Avenue, and City Place. Walking parade members will tour the displays along the perimeter of the lake on the 1/2-mile brick pathway. Food trucks will be provided that night as well as selling hot chocolate and marshmallows for roasting in our Santa’s Village.
  • Handicapped and elderly folks will also appreciate our free golf cart rides (courtesy of Craig Flagler Palms Funeral Home) around the lake to view the displays if they are not able to walk that far.
  • All net proceeds from gate donations and sponsorships will go to support Rotary’s local non-profit charities and support college scholarships for high school seniors.

Thanks to all for attending the premier holiday event in Flagler County!
