Fishermen’s Village has a lot of fun planned for the holiday season this year! There will be Shopping, boating, lights, music and more to enhance your tropical holiday experience. You don’t want to miss out on any of the great times to be had this December!
The Festival of Lights will continue on for the rest of the month! There are over one million lights and holiday decorations on display. The halls are decked with boughs of holly, Christmas trees, a gingerbread house, and everything else to make your holiday dreams come true. The celebration of Hanukah begins with the lighting of the Menorah on December 8th at 7:00pm, presented by the Chabad of Charlotte County. Fishermen’s Village has been turned into a winter wonderland. It’s no wonder Santa will be making a few more stops at the Village to take pictures with the family! All of the decorations will stay up until the New Year, so come check it out!
King Fisher Fleet offers a tropical way to spend the holiday! King Fisher Fleet is hosting their famous Lighted Canal Cruises. These excursions will take you through the lovely waterways of Punta Gorda to view Christmas lights from the water. This relaxing, tropical boat ride adds a magical twist to the classical way of looking at holiday decorations. Starting December 5th, and lasting throughout the whole month, the cruises will be offered at three different times per night. Spots are filling up quick so make your reservation at 941-639-0969.
To continue the holiday excitement, the annual Punta Gorda Lighted Boat Parade, presented by the Punta Gorda Chamber is December 16th. Boats of all shapes and sizes come decked out in holiday cheer. Fishermen’s Village has the best seats in town to watch the magnificent display of boats! You can see all the beautiful boats while dining at one of our fabulous restaurants. Admission is an unwrapped, new toy to be donated to TOYS FOR TOTS. It’s going to be a “boat” load of fun!
