Cooler weather is inching its way down toward Central Florida, signaling the turn of the seasons at long last. With the holidays ahead of us and travel arrangements being made, Silver Springs State Park is gearing up to offer your family a variety of festive activities that will make even those visiting in-laws smile. Throughout the month of December, the park will be presenting its First Annual Lights and Laser Holiday Celebration, a visually stunning event that will be geared towards guests of all ages. This event, sponsored by BG Capital Group, will be the perfect opportunity to bring your visiting relatives and show off your hometown, or entertain your college student who is home on break. Fog machines, multiple laser projectors, and snow machines will be at work, creating a winter wonderland of light.
Come and have your picture taken with Santa and his helpers, and listen as carolers spread the joy of the season throughout the park. Photos will be available for purchase and to pick up the nights of the event. The laser show will be held December 6th-8th, 13th-15th, and 19th-31st. There will be two shows each night, the first at 6:30pm and the later show at 8:30pm. Tickets for the event are $5 for children under 9, $10 for students or youth under the age of 18, and $15 for adults and can be purchased at the following link https://www.ocoos.com/me/silver-springs-management. If you are hosting a group, you can purchase a family pass of five tickets for $50. Food and beverages will be available for purchase throughout the evening. Bring your family together in a beautiful outdoor setting this year and share in the joy of the season with the Ocala community at nature’s event venue.
