Fantasy Lights continues throughout December, thanks to the Rotary Club.
The city of Palm Coast officially kicked off the holiday season with the annual tree lighting ceremony and Fantasy Lights festival on Saturday, Nov. 30, at Central Park in Town Center.
City Council member Nick Klufas and President of the Rotary Club Maralee Walsh-McDaniel shared some words with the community, and right after 6 p.m., Santa arrived on a Palm Coast Fire Engine to turn on the lights.
Hundreds of families and friends gathered to enjoy an evening charged with holiday spirit.
“The most exciting part of the event is seeing the sense of community of hundreds of residents who come together to brighten each other’s day,” Klufas said.
Kids also had a space to create ornaments, crafts, and write letters to Santa at the Parks and Rec booth.
The Rotary Club’s 14th-annual Fantasy Lights festival includes 50 animated light displays around the lake at Central Park, and a Santa’s Village. The self-guided walking tour will continue daily through Dec. 30 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
Admission to Fantasy Lights is free, and donations to support Rotary’s service work are accepted.
