Tis the season to be jolly and what better way to spend the holidays than with Christmas events in Tampa such as this festive one. To kick-start the holidays, Hyde Park Village invites the Tampa Bay community to take part in their annual Enchanted Tree Lighting, which benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Tampa.

Saturday, November 18th, 5 - 9 p.m. in Hyde Park Village 

This free event takes place on Saturday, November 18th at 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Hyde Park Village. There will be fun for the entire family. On the list of joyful activities includes photos with Santa, a kid’s zone, face painting, balloon animals, and more leading up to the lighting of the tree at 8 p.m.

Come hungry! There will be food and beer trucks on site and the fine dining restaurants in the shops including Bartaco, Goody Goody Burgers, Irish 31 - Hyde Park Village, On Swann, Timpano Italian Chophouse, and The Wine Exchange Bistro & Bar will be open.

This event doesn't fall short in entertainment. The night will be filled with the melodic sounds of Late Night Brass, Tampa Bay’s Premier Horn Band that has been celebrating musical excellence since 2005, to truly immerse the guest in the snowless winter wonderland. The Annual Hyde Park Village Enchanted Tree Lighting returns for the holidays and it's a great way to get into a festive spirit!
