Can you believe next week is Christmas? This year flew by! We hope everyone is having a lovely holiday season! This weekend is a great mixture of wonderful events around the Heartland and the last weekend to shop before Christmas is here.

Kick off the weekend with Downtown Sounds featuring Harry Havery on Friday night at 6pm! The Circle in Sebring has plenty of room for everyone to set up a blanket or chairs, grab a bite to eat from one of our local restaurants, and enjoy the great music! Harry Havery has always been a crowd favorite with eclectic music and pure talent!

Has your little one seen Santa yet? This Saturday, December 21 at 8am, come have Breakfast with Santa at Dee’s Place! Enjoy a delicious breakfast and make sure your littles all have the time to speak with Santa about all their desires for this holiday season.

Ready to party? A Frosty Christmas Party starts at 11am on Saturday at Sebring Soda & Ice Cream Works. There will be sales on soda baskets, $1 hot cocoa, coloring contests, pictures with Frosty (from 2pm-4pm), and so much more! Activities for all ages because you’re never too old to be in the Christmas spirit!

Want a beautiful handmade ornament to remember the season? Bring your kids, ages 3-14, down to the Highlands Art League for Ornamentally Festive! Your child will create a one-of-a-kind ornament that will be perfect for your tree. Instruction, supplies, snacks, and hot cocoa will be provided! 

Are you ready for the end? Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premiers this weekend and would make an excellent date night. This marks the conclusion of the Skywalker saga as the First Order faces the surviving Resistance. With the knowledge of the generations before them, will Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron come out on top?

Also, it’s last minute gift shopping time! Don’t forget that an  experience makes an excellent, clutter-free gift. Some experience ideas we came up with include:
-Tickets to a show at the Alan Jay Wildstein Center for the Performing Arts
-Tickets to a show at the Highlands Lakeside Theatre
-Schedule a class with your girlfriends at the Grateful Hearts
-Grab a gift card to Faded Bistro & Beer Garden to try the drink flights
-Purchase a facial from Skin Care by Elle
-Tickets to the 12 Hours of Sebring
-Gift cards for a round of golf at some of our beautiful courses
-Annual passes to Highlands Hammock State Park
-Registration for an Art Uncorked night at Highlands Art League

We hope everyone is having a merry and bright holiday season! If you go to any event this weekend, tag us and use #SRundown to show off your pics! Also, check HERE for more events on our calendar!
