Winter Village at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park is happening through the end of the year! Winter Village includes local vendors, food purveyors, magical train rides, a lights display, an ice skating rink, and a curling setup. Get on board with one of the most captivating winter Olympic sports; it’s essentially shuffleboard on ice. It runs through January 1.

Located along the Tampa Riverwalk, Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park (600 N Ashley Dr) is transformed with the sights, sounds, and activities of the holidays for children and adults of all ages. You can see all that’s going on at Winter Village by visiting its website.
