Orlando, Fla. (Nov. 21, 2019) – Lake Nona is kicking off the holiday season with its second annual Oh What Fun! A Holiday Festival featuring a flurry of festive activities for the whole family. From Nov. 29 to Jan. 5, Lake Nona Town Center will transform into a true winter wonderland with one of Central Florida’s only outdoor, open-air skating rinks surrounded by Christmas trees, twinkly lights, a mailbox for letters to Santa and everything we love most about the holiday season.

Lake Nona’s Oh What Fun! A Holiday Festival will be open Thursdays through Fridays 4-10 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m.-10 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Each week is packed with activities including classic holiday movies, jolly appearances from Santa Claus, strolling carolers, kid’s crafts and the occasional snow fall. Skate rentals begin at $10 per person.

The holiday movies will start each Thursday at 7 p.m. The holiday movie lineup includes:

  • Thursday, Dec. 5: “The Santa Clause”
