Christmas is coming to Ellenton Gardens

Christmas is only a few weeks away and now is the perfect time to start enjoying the holiday season! Thanksgiving is officially over and it’s the perfect time to decorate the tree, turn up those Christmas carols and enjoy the colorfully bright streets around town. Christmas carols are always a good start to really feeling the holiday season, but several of our nearby towns are also hosting various events to get you, and keep you, in the Christmas spirit. Only 30 minutes away in St. Petersburg, the town is home to many of our favorite holiday events.

A Real Snow Event is perfect for family members visiting with little ones. Sixty-five tons of snow will be ready and available at North Straub Park at the annual holiday Snowfest celebration from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 5. Kids can enjoy big and kiddie toboggan slide, getting creative in an art tent, singing karaoke, moonwalks, giant slide, “glice” ice skating, and a Kiddyland area designed especially for pre-schoolers with inflatable train, cookie decorating, and more.


The Santa Parade is another fun event for all ages. The town’s 89th Annual Santa Parade starts at 10 a.m. Dec. 5. This year, the route begins on Central Avenue and 5th St. and travels east to Bayshore Drive. It then turns north ending at 5th Ave. The parade is free and there will be live music to enjoy during the displays.

Our most favorite event is the St. Petersburg Christmas Jamboree. Guests can enjoy the old-fashioned festivities of a Victorian holiday with shopping among talented artists and craft vendors, enjoying live music and other holiday festivities. Marvel at the beautiful Christmas decor and try some tasty holiday treats! Santa will be hosting a hay ride and if that’s not really your thing, there will also be a living historical museum on site.
