Winter Springs Town Center
Tis’ the season for joy and celebration! Stop by the Winter Springs Town Center and enjoy the festivities this holiday season! It all kicks off with one of the longest-running traditions in our city, the 37th annual Holiday Parade featuring local talent and business. Gather around the Christmas Tree for the 15th annual Christmas tree Lighting! The Winter Wonderland event will follow with Entertainment by local youth and our Winter Springs Dancers with Class. Santa will visit with the local children by the tree, and a fun-filled kids playland will keep your little ones merry all evening long!
Free shuttle bussing will be available starting at 3:30 pm at Winter Springs Elementary and will run until 9:30 pm when the last shuttle departs from the Town Center.
N. Tuskawilla Road and Blumberg will be closed to on-street parking starting at 12:01 AM on Saturday, December 1, 2018. N. Tuskawilla Road and Blumberg Drive will then both be closed to through traffic starting at 1:00 pm.
The holiday parade starts at 4:30 pm at Keeth Elementary School and goes north on Tuskawilla Road ending in the Town Center on Blumberg Drive. Normal vehicular traffic on Tuskawilla Road will be transitioned so that both north and southbound traffic will be in the southbound lanes. This will lead to congestion in the area. The movement of traffic flows will begin at 3:30 pm. Normal traffic flow should resume around 6:30 pm on Tuskawilla, south of 434. Use Lake Drive, 17-92 and Red Bug Lake Road as alternates to avoid the area.
N. Tuskawilla Road will be closed from State Road 434 to the High School access road and Blumberg will be closed from Bear Springs Dr to N. Tuskawilla Rd. Those road closures will start at 1:00 pm until 10:00 pm. Motorists can go around the closure by using Bear Springs Drive to the High School access road or by taking Michael Blake Blvd to N. Tuskawilla Rd. The tree lighting festivities will start as soon as the parade passes through N. Tuskawilla.
Show off your organization or group at our 37th annual Holiday Parade! If you or someone you know would like to participate in the parade, now is the time to submit your entry form.
