Santa Comes to Winter Garden!!


The annual "SANTA RUN" brings Santa and his sleigh through city neighborhoods! This moving parade takes place between 5:45 PM and 9:00 PM each night as Santa, along with his firefighter, police, and city helpers spread holiday music, treats, and good cheer along the way.

Click a link below to determine what night we will be in your area and to see a map of the route. When you open the map, zoom in to the green line with red arrows to follow Santa's journey.

North East area of Winter Garden on December 15th
North West area of Winter Garden on December 16th
South West area of Winter Garden on December 17th
South Central area of Winter Garden on December 18th
South East area of Winter Garden on December 19th

An alternate date is scheduled for December 22nd if weather interrupts one of Santa's visits.

Note: This is a constantly moving parade which restricts us from being able to travel down every street in the City. Please pay close attention to the 2014 maps as Santa's route may have changed! If our route does not include your street, simply find a close-by street or intersection along our route, grab the kids and the cameras, and join your neighbors on the sidewalk to cheer Santa on!
