The Christmas Eve Torchlight Parade is one of the most beloved Winter Park traditions.
Start the day in the Village and visit Santa in the Gazebo from 2:00 -5:00 pm and enjoy timely Christmas carols with the wandering troop of singers. The torchlight parade begins at 5:30 pm, a procession of torch-bearing skiers and riders begin their way down Lower Hughes trail followed by Santa Claus and his merry helpers. A spectacular fireworks display and snowcats adorned with Christmas colors light up the slopes in a Christmas tree formation to conclude the festivities!
