Hundreds relished in timeless holiday traditions to help support the Make-A-Wish®Central & Northern Florida.

This year the event was held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, December 3, 2016.
Quench your nostalgia and satisfy your sweet tooth at this family-friendly event. Walk down Candy Cane Lane to meet Santa, paint your face like an elf, decorate cookies, and feed your Yuletide appetite. This tinsel town will be chock-full of interactive activities, decorations, treats, and a healthy helping of holiday spirit. Rejoice in good tidings and help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in our community.
Every 38 minutes Make-A-Wish®grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.
As a whole, Make-A-Wish® granted nearly 14,000 wishes last year alone – each one a life-affirming testament to hope, inspiration, and resilience. Wishes strengthen wish kids and their families, rally communities together, and change the lives of everyone involved. Experience the stories of those who know firsthand the power of a wish-come-true.
Make-A-Wish serves a unique, and vital, role in helping strengthen and empower children battling life-threatening medical conditions.
