If you missed the recent parade and Winter Wonderland in Lake Wales, then check out these events happening near you.

If you have not been keeping up with all the local holiday events going on here in Lake Wales, then you are missing out! Just this past weekend alone, there were two spectacular Christmas events going on in downtown Lake Wales that the Lake Wales Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership helped sponsor. The first one, which occurred on Dec. 7th, was the city’s annual holiday celebration titled, “Make it Magical.” This wintertime celebration had a “Vintage Homespun Holiday” theme and featured everything from live music and performances, to Florida snow, and an opportunity to see Santa Claus himself! For anyone who was not interested in the live music, snow, or Santa Claus, the holiday event also gave attendees the opportunity to go shopping, eat delicious food, and participate in crafts and other family-friendly activities. If you happened to be one of the unfortunate people that were not able to attend this year’s “Make It Magical” holiday event, make sure to come out to next year’s annual celebration.

The second spectacular Lake Wales Christmas event this year was the Lake Wales Kiwanis Christmas Parade, on Dec. 8th. Running from Central Ave from Lake Wales Lake to City Hall, this year’s parade theme was “Christmas Through the Decades.” Special shout out to Christ’s Church on the Move for their Peanuts themed float winning the President’s Choice Award at the parade. You guys killed it!
