Christmas Eve, Send Santa Off In Style


Santa Loves Pensacola

Every year since Winterfest started, Santa has been spending more and more time with the kids of Pensacola, because he has such a great time here! To thank him, Winterfest holds a special send-off celebration on Christmas Eve. Kids who wrote Santa's favorite letters join us for a Polar Express trolley ride and receive a special gift from Santa. It all happens at 7pm on Christmas Eve.

Photos with Santa on Christmas Eve

Before the sendoff, Santa will visit with kids and take photos all day, starting at 11am. Visiting Santa is always free, but you can also get a special photo and video package to remember your visit.

Our tours and performances light up beautiful Downtown Pensacola from Historic Seville to the Palafox Business District. This year, we offer three exciting holiday memory tours for the entire family, including a special Santa's Express Tour the week before Christmas that's great for young children, and our flagship Performance Tour which features 16 fun performances with your favorite holiday characters.
