Palmetto’s Christmas in the Park

 

Start your holiday festivities with an old-fashioned Christmas at Palmetto Historical Park and Manatee County Agricultural Museum.

 

On December 4th from 5:00 – 9:00 pm and December 5th from 3:00 – 9:00 pm, this free event offers something for everyone!

 

Enjoy beautifully decorated buildings, kids’ crafts, entertainment and of course, Santa!

 

Featured activities include letters to Santa, contests for prizes, model trains from the FL Garden Railroad Society, letters to soldiers, planting and petting animals with FFA, recipes to collect in each of the park buildings, and a “Memory Tree” in the Military Museum. In addition to free craft projects, there will be a Children’s Craft Area where crafts can be made for $1 or $2.

 

Photos with Santa will be taken for $8 in the Carnegie Library or you can bring your own camera.

 

Food vendors on the premises include Demetrio’s Pizza, Word of Mouth BBQ, and Tiny Tots will be selling Mexican food.

 

Alex’s Lemonade Stand will be raising funds for children’s cancer research and the Sweet Shop will raise funds for school programming. In the spirit of Christmas, help needy families by bringing canned goods for First United Methodist Church of Palmetto’s food pantry and drop them off at park entrances.  

 

The park is located at 515-10th Ave. West, Palmetto. For more information, call 721-2034.
