Visit Pensacola Unveils Holiday Cube in Plaza de Luna
Pensacola, Fla .(Nov. 21, 2018) – Visit Pensacola celebrated the beginning of the holiday season by unveiling a highly anticipated holiday surprise, an eight-foot holiday cube in Plaza de Luna in Downtown Pensacola.
“This project is a celebration of our great city and all of the many different experiences that both visitors and the community get to enjoy,” President of Visit Pensacola Steve Hayes said. “From all of us at Visit Pensacola we’d like to wish you a happy holiday, and I’d like to personally invite you to come down to take photos and share them with us and the community by hashtagging #experiencepcola.”
The Holiday Cube depicts different Pensacola experiences aimed to encompass the entire area. On one side, Santa’s sleigh is being drawn by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels flying high over the Pensacola Beach Pier. On another, a typographic representation of the Graffiti Bridge takes people on a journey through an artistic portal encouraging readers to say yes to new adventures. A third side showcases Perdido Key and Big Lagoon State Park complete with interactive pelican wings. The fourth panel is a larger than life holiday postcard that has Pensacola staples drawn into the lettering.
“The Visi Pensacola team wanted to be able to engage with the community this holiday season,” Director of Marketing and Communications Nicole Stacey said. “The cube was designed as a place for the community and our visitors to have to take family holiday photos, share on social media and as a way to showcase our unique area.”
The Holiday Cube will be set up in Plaza de Luna from now until Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019, and will be lit at night so that it is visible. For more information on the Visit Pensacola Holiday Cube, visit visitpensacola.com/holidaycube.
