While it might not be frosty in Florida, who says you can’t get into the holiday spirit! And what better way than to gather with family and friends and take in the spectacular lights displays on offer in the region this festive season. Our Pensacola limo service will be that extra special Christmas treat for your loved ones, and our chauffeurs will make sure to whisk you around all the sights in luxurious comfort, whilst all you need to do is cosy up and enjoy the displays! Here are our top picks for the best Christmas lights going on in and around Pensacola this holiday.
- Wonderland of Lights
Visitors are invited to drive through the dazzling display of festive lights and spectacular holiday scenes on offer down at Pensacola Interstate Fairgrounds, but the fun doesn’t stop once you’ve taken in the lights – head down to Santa’s Village where there’s even more festive merriment to be found! Kids can get photos taken and share their wish list with Santa himself, ride ponies and camels, leave their festive artwork on the giant Christmas mural, and there is fun to be had for all as you walk around the Holiday Market offering a variety of food, drinks, and the perfect last-minute holiday gifts. The Wonderland of Lights is open daily from 6pm up until December 30.
- Winterfest Pensacola
This winter spectacular is a true Pensacola tradition, where the streets of Downtown are transformed with thousands of twinkling lights and holiday-themed events. Take a tour around on the Polar Express Trolley and choose from one of the many themed evenings featuring visits from your favourite Christmas characters and scenes from beloved holiday movie classics. Performance Tours feature live action out on the street and in the trolleys themselves, including a Living Nativity, The Polar Express, and The Grinch. There are also Reindeer Games, visits with Santa, and a free plaza show on offer every night. Winterfest runs at select dates and times until December 24.
- Gulf Breeze Zoo Lights
Thousands of sparkling lights illuminate the Gulf Breeze Zoo throughout the month of December, allowing visitors to stroll through the beautiful displays at their own leisure and enjoy the magic of the zoo at night. There will be various events to enjoy on select evenings, including live ice sculpting demonstrations, a cappella performances of Christmas classics, and the chance to meet Santa along with some of his very special animal friends! The Zoo Lights run from December 15 through December 30, nightly from 5pm to 9pm.
- Sowell’s North Pole Christmas Lights Display
Every year the Sowell family put on an incredible holiday drive-through display at their farm in Milton, Florida. Featuring nearly half a million breath-taking lights and festive Christmas scenes set across 15-acres of land, kids can even take in the lights from a special train ride for an extra Christmassy treat. The lights are open nightly from 5.30pm to 9pm (including Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) up until December 27. Try to go on a weekday if you can to avoid the crowds – this event gets seriously popular at weekends!
