Santa Claus is taking a little vacation before his big night and Winterfest is hosting him in Greater Fort Lauderdale

Capture all the fun and excitement as Santa comes to visit starting the week of November 21 till December 12 (and maybe a little longer). Winterfest and Visit Lauderdale will be tracking Santa to let all the good little boys and girls where he might Pop Up. Look for constant updates on Santa Sightings – Virtual Santa Events as well as children, family activities, ornament making, and parties for grown-ups on this page. The Parade is suspended but Santa will still be riding on his floating “sleigh” – look below for details.
