Winter Village returns to Downtown Tampa

Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park will be transformed into a winter wonderland for the holiday season.

Children are at the Winter Village at Curtis Hixon. There is fake snow falling and holiday lights are twinkling in the background.

The most wonderful time of the year.

The Tampa Bay area is getting into the festive spirit. The Tampa Downtown Partnership’s Winter Village returns on Friday, Nov. 17 and runs through New Year’s Day.

Here’s what you can expect to get up to:
