Promenade at Bonita Bay is about to transform the shopping-dining destination into a holiday season venue for the 2018 Festival of Lights. Southwest Floridians and visitors of all ages can experience this annual event on Friday, November 30th from 5 to 8
The essence of the Festival of Lights is ‘Operation Santa—’ the Promenade’s coined partnership with the Children’s Network of Southwest Florida, LLC — a call-to-action for attendees to bring a new, unwrapped toy in exchange for complimentary pictures with Santa. The partners will donate all collected toys to children in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry countries via the Children’s Network of Southwest Florida.
The Festival of Lights also includes:
- Tree lighting in The Center Court
- Holiday refreshments in The Center Court
- Live music at The Center Bar
- Kids craft area
- Live dance demonstration by Enchanted Ballroom of Bonita Springs
- Food and drink specials for purchase at The Center Bar
- Over 25 unique, all-tastes shopping and dining items for purchase throughout the Promenade
For a list of other days on which you can drop off new, unwrapped toys for Operation Santa, as well as more information on the Festival of Lights, call the Promenade at (239) 949-1573. For a complete Children’s Network of Southwest Florida wish list and other ways to donate to the child welfare cause, visit ChildNetSWFL.org.
Additionally, starting at 4 p.m., two Promenade businesses will host holiday events of their own. Little Paris Decoration (Suite 104) invites families and friends to its Painting Father Christmas Workshop. For $10, they can paint a Santa Claus, as well as enjoy small bites and beverages. Those interested should contact Felicia at (239) 450-8232 or email@example.com. Meanwhile, Creative Pottery (Suite 119) is starting a new holiday tradition with ceramic ornament painting for $10 — including a half-off studio fee. For more information, call the Bonita Springs location at (239) 405-8446.
