Central Florida and Orlando Events and Entertainment
Lace up your shoes, stretch your legs, polish your antlers and join TV 27 Community Connection and WFTV 9 Family Connection for the Vanessa Welch Reindeer Run, this Saturday. Run or walk the spectacular 3-mile route through SeaWorld while holiday music plays throughout the park. Bring the whole family out for the best Holiday fun run around!
Nickelodeon's preschool music group The Fresh Beat Band performs live at the Amway Center, Sunday. Come sing, dance and be part of the fun as Kiki, Marina, Twist and Shout help kids learn the fundamentals of music, the importance of friendship, working together and respecting our differences. Songs performed include "Here We Go," "A Friend Like You," "Bananas" and more.
Every year, the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center is transformed into a Christmas Wonderland filled with perfect poinsettias, more than 2 million twinkling lights, lavish and gorgeous holiday displays, a breathtaking 54-foot-tall majestic Christmas tree, DreamWorks Animation characters Meet & Greet opportunities, spectacular live entertainment, and most of all...lots and lots of ICE!
The Orlando Gay Chorus presents its annual holiday concert, Eat, Drink and be Merry, Saturday and Sunday at The Plaza LIVE in Orlando. Selections the chorus will sing include “Bring A Torch, Jeanette, Isabella,” a mash-up of “Celebration” by Kool and the Gang and “Holiday” by Madonna, a medley of Elvis Christmas songs and much more!
If you visit Disney World during the holidays, stay alert for seasonal Hidden Mickeys (and other Hidden Characters!). The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights is showcased every year at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and new Hidden Mickeys, along with many returning images, are placed in the show each year. Enjoy these fun highlights.
Lovely Lisa (daughter of Elvis and Pricilla, and sister of Marie) is an adorable Shih-Tzu seen here lounging on the couch in her lady bug outfit (which is going to look lovely on television). The Stanley Steemer Pet Pic of the Week title will go perfectly with her antennae, spotted wings and cute fuzzy face.
