Old Town, Kissimmee’s walking district full of shops, rides, food and entertainment, has announced several new family friendly events starting November 26 in celebration of the holiday season.
As it continues its countdown to its 30th anniversary in December, Old Town is offering several holiday themed events, including the Christmas Wish at Old Town holiday tree lighting ceremony with elves and special snow effects, set to run on select dates from November 26 through December 24. Additionally, the entertainment district will host a toy drive for underprivileged children in Osceola County on December 2 – 3 called the Old Town Toy Cruise. The annual Christmas Golf Cart Parade presented by Sherwood Forest is on December 10.
“The holidays at Old Town have always been a special time for families,” said Thearon Scurlock, general manager for Old Town. “We transform our Main Street into a Christmas Wonderland with decorations, snow, and our grand Christmas tree at the entrance. This year, we are excited to have visits from Santa too!”
Ongoing events include the popular Little Darlin’s Street Party and Cruise-In, Friday Nite Muscle Car Cruise and Saturday Nite Classic Car Cruise. Parking is free Sunday through Thursday and is $10 on Fridays and Saturdays.
Built in 1986, Old Town is the recreation of a classic Florida town at the turn of the century featuring historical architecture and distinctive storefronts. Learn more at myoldtownusa.com, and watch this 2014 edition of Photo Finds for a look around the complex:
