‘Tis the season to holiday market hop. Beautiful Ybor City will host its 5th annual Jingle Bell Bazaar at Centennial Park (800 E 8th Avenue) on December 10. Attendees will also be within walking distance of some of my favorite local Ybor spots such as Stone Soup Company and Foundation Coffee Co. The fun goes from 12pm-6pm, and it’s free to attend.
This is a major shopping event with multiple vendors posting up around Centennial Park throughout the day. However, this event is far more than just a shopping excursion. The Jingle Bell Bazaar will include live music performances throughout the entirety of the event. Bands include Greg Fuentes, Horizon, and Jah Movement, among other listed bands.
Santa himself will be at this Wonderland so the whole family will have a chance to get their photo in with the holly jolly icon. This year, Santa and all the attendees will be treated to the Red Velvet Bakeoff, plus a big gaming truck.
It’s the Christmas event of the year in historic Ybor City. On Sunday, visitors can also pay a visit to the Vintage Roost for their huge vintage market.
