Southwest Florida is a wonderful place to live with plenty of action for everyone, ranging from community events to attractions and beyond.

This week, there are several notable events and activities occurring that may catch your eye and give you a chance to enjoy yourself and your family in the great weather we’re scheduled to have over the next few days.

Santa’s Wonderland: Tuesday, Dec. 3

Tomorrow, Santa Claus is putting on his sunglasses and paying our part of the country a little visit!

Stop on by and let your children take a free photo made with Santa while enjoying free games and activities. If you stop by from 3pm to 5pm on Christmas Eve, you can also decorate Christmas cookies you can enjoy later (or leave for St. Nick).

Celebration of Lights: Friday, Dec. 6

Later this week, Ave Maria will host its annual Celebration of Lights, a fantastic holiday celebration involving an outdoor ice skating garden, festive drinks and food in the Town Center, a holiday parade, stage performances from the community, an inflatable obstacle course for the kids, a rock climbing wall, face painting, and unbeatable family fun that only Southwest Florida can offer.

The event starts at 5pm and lasts until 9pm, so arrive early so you can enjoy all Ave Maria will have to offer.

Festival of Lights: Saturday, Dec. 7

If you can’t make it to the Celebration of Lights (or just want a double dose of holiday spirit), head over to the CenturyLink Holiday Festival of Lights this Saturday in downtown Cape Coral. Here you can enjoy a massive holiday celebration, including pictures with Santa Claus, a Kidz Street play area your kids will love, a tree lighting, and the 25-ton snowdrift slide that you can’t miss.

Wherever you go and whatever you do, enjoy Southwest Florida, the upcoming holidays, and – of course – your friends and family!
