The City of Casselberry has some great holiday events lined up, and for those looking for plans tonight, what’s better than a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus? The jolly couple will be driving through the streets–along with a host of elves–handing out candy and holiday cheer to families along the way. Check out his route here and see where he will be.

Missed Santa on his drive? Don’t worry — he will be ready for visits on Friday, December 11th at the Art & Music in the Park and Food Truck Bazaar! This regular event will be breaking out all the holiday cheer at its usual location in Secret Lake Park, 200 N. Triplet Lake Drive, from 5-9 p.m. This is a great place to pick up some unique last minute gifts, too! This Friday features 15 food trucks, more than 20 vendors selling handmade items, singing by Seminole State College of Florida’s SeminoleSound and other entertainment. Plus there will be a holiday movie–the wonderful Muppets Christmas Carol. Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive for take photos at 6:30, with the movie starting at 7:30 p.m. The event is free (as always).
