A Very Merry Daytona Christmas

December 03, 2018

This December, the City of Daytona is offering up an abundant assortment of holiday-themed events and attractions, and listed here are a few of our favorites. First, check out the “Magic of Lights” holiday experience through December 31 at the Daytona International Speedway. One of only seven cities that will host the “Magic of Lights,” Daytona has transformed its famous Speedway from the “World Center of Racing” into a dazzling holiday display. Part of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Florida Hospital Foundation.

Next, enjoy a take on the beloved holiday classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Showing December 14-16 at the Daytona Playhouse, the play of George Bailey’s Christmas dilemma will be presented as a 1940’s radio broadcast, including all the sound effects performed live on stage. Lastly, create an old-fashioned Christmas memory for the family with a visit to the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse’s Winter Holiday Event on December 26. The entire family will enjoy climbing the tallest lighthouse in Florida, the historical exhibits, and a day of themed activities.
