Jingle All the Way to Pensacola this Holiday Season

Pensacola sure doesn’t see a lot of snow, and we have been known to wrap palm trees in strings of colored lights, but that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a good cup of hot chocolate, holiday cheer and celebrating the winter season. Experience all that Pensacola has to offer this holiday season below.






Dancing elves, Christmas town, and twinkly lights. Explore all this and more at Winterfest.
