Celebrate the holidays in Tampa Heights. The bustling Armature Works (1910 N Ola Ave) is always active during major holidays, and this December it’s going all out for the community. On Saturday, December 2, join the Armature Works crew at 5pm for The Heights District’s Sixth Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration.
More than a tree lighting ceremony, this event will include a holiday market and visitors from the North Pole. Seasonal drinks will be available for purchase for 21+ attendees, along with seasonal gifts from their pop-up market, and food from any of the 14 vendors within Heights Public Market. Outside food, beverages, and coolers are prohibited.
Don’t forget about their Toy Drive benefiting Toys for Tots, which runs through December 10. The mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas time. Find a drop-off location in the Heights Market.
More holiday events include a Succulent Wreath Workshop on December 6, The Heights Night Market on December 13, and multiple S’mores by the Fire events outside the venue. Art admirers can support their favorite local creators during the Second Sunday Market on December 10. Those with a sweet tooth need to sign up for the Christmas Cookie Workshop on December 12.
