Holiday shoppers and families are invited to make merry with a full day of free festivities at St. Johns Town Center, culminating with a spectacular tree lighting and fireworks show. Retailers will also offer great holiday shopping opportunities, in-store promotions and specials.
As part of the full day of holiday activities, shoppers will enjoy live music, a kid’s zone with balloon artists, face painters, costumed characters and more prior to the tree lighting and fireworks.
Main Stage activities begin at 6 p.m. with special performances from the Charlie Walker Band and the University of North Florida Tuba Euphonium Quartet.
At 8 p.m., event headliner Vertical Horizon will perform hit songs as well as seasonal favorites to get everyone into the holiday spirit. Their first major release, “Everything You Want “, sold 2 million copies with the title song hitting #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Adult Top 40 charts. The concert takes place in Park Green near Maggiano's.
Immediately following the performance, Santa will lead the audience in an exciting countdown to light the dazzling 32-foot tree and kick off a spectacular fireworks finale!
