We’re just weeks away from major holiday events in the city of Tampa. Winter Village returns to Curtis Hixon Park, Ybor City has a big tree lighting ceremony, and Vintage Roost in Ybor has announced its holiday market series. The beautiful Hyde Park Village neighborhood will host its own holiday event on November 16 from 5pm-9pm. A tree lighting ceremony will begin at 7pm that evening.
A portion of revenue from the evening will benefit Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida, which helps critically ill children realize life-changing wishes.
Holiday Happening promises to be vibrant and full of seasonal cheer. Attendees will delight in an array of holiday performances, including live music, aerial performers, stilt performers, face painting, enchanting illusions, and of course the opportunity to visit with Santa.
Enjoy music, a market, and holiday lights
Seasonal refreshments and treats will be on offer from Hyde Park Village eateries and local food trucks. For those searching for the perfect holiday gift, the open-air festive market showcases treasures from Hyde Park Village retailers such as OddFellows Ice Cream Co., Procure, Nike, Yaya+Lou, and more.
Amidst the festive celebrations and twinkling lights, Hyde Park Village, in collaboration with Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida, will host a special wish-granting ceremony. An unsuspecting young individual, battling significant health challenges, will have their most cherished wish come to fruition.
