Tree Lighting, Food Trucks, and Santa

Tree Lighting 2018

We have combined two of our most popular events for one spectacular night! Food Truck Thursday will be in combination with Center Lake Park's Annual Tree Lighting. Come out on Thursday, November 29th, to have a delicious dinner at one of our 9 food trucks and then watch as we light up Center Lake Park with our giant Christmas tree. Santa will also be joining us and be available for FREE professional photos taken by the Oviedo Photo Club. The photos will be available for download after the event at no cost.
