The Holiday Spirit will be wondrous filling Las Olas with the beloved 60th Annual Christmas on Las Olas. The event will take place on Tuesday, November 29, 2022 from 5:00pm to 10:00pm between SE 8th Avenue and SE 11th Avenue in the world-famous downtown Fort Lauderdale corridor.
The Las Olas Association hosts this traditional one-day family-oriented celebration that will bring spectators of all ages and remains to be the largest outdoor free event hosted in our community. The Winter Wonderland with festive lights and holiday decorations will again be sponsored by The Las Olas Company which enables this event to occur yearly.
Highlights of the evening include the Kids Fun Zone which will include a bungee trampoline for fun-seekers of all ages. The Fun Zone will also include a photo opportunity with the big man himself, Santa, to engage that holiday spirit. Also, back by popular demand is the 75-foot Snow Mountain sponsored by Anidjar & Levine, P.A. which is great for the entire family. The amazing ice-Skating Rink, which accommodates new and seasoned skaters, is back again and proudly sponsored by one of the community favorites, Broward Health. There will be three performance stages featuring 24 local school and church choirs, dance troupes, theatrical artists, and singers. The stages are all sponsored by Truly Noel, Benedetti Orthodontics, along with a new sponsor that is the highly anticipated, The Whitfield Las Olas being brought to life by Steve Hudson and Charlie Ladd, set to open in 2024 on the corner of Las Olas Boulevard and 10th Terrace.
