Family Photos with Santa and the Grinch
Santa would love to visit with you in his sleigh! Reservations are sold out for 2021, but we may have a few walk-up seats available if you are attending Winterfest for another event. Stop by the photos table to ask and we'll do our best to accommodate.
The Magic of Pensacola Winterfest
The moment you enter Plaza Wonderland on Palafox Place, the snow begins to fall. A cup of hot chocolate and the sound of a trolley bell brings back memories of the Polar Express. The conductor calls your name: All aboard for the most wonderful journey you'll take this Christmas season. Take a 25 minute ride aboard our mini-train through the lights, snow, and magical scenery of Winterfest!
