One week from today, on Thursday, December 15th from 5:30pm to 9:00pm, get ready to join in the fun of one of Tallahassee’s Holiday Must-See’s. 

Parking and traffic will be a nightmare as it always is but that just goes to show how great this annual event is….. 

Can you imagine setting up a display with over 250,000 lights? Dorothy B. Oven Park will shine for the holidays. While preparing for the 12th annual “Elf Night”, they have spared no effort in decorating the beautiful park, house and gardens with dazzling, sparkling, twinkling lights. The public is invited to stroll through the Oven Park house and grounds for freeon Elf Night, which takes place Thursday, December 15, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Dorothy B. Oven Park, located at 3205 Thomasville Road, is a very popular locale for parties and other events during the holiday season because of its inherent charm. Elf Night is a perfect opportunity for families to take time out from their hectic schedules and enjoy a unique and magical holiday evening together at this PRNA facility. Elf Night is co-sponsored by Florida Surplus Lines Service Office and is free to the public.

In addition to viewing the decorated house and grounds, citizens can enjoy hot cider, cocoa and cookies. Parents will want to bring cameras and camcorders to record all the smiles and wonderment on their children’s faces … and perhaps even Santa will stop by for a visit! For safety reasons, vehicles will not be allowed to drive through the park during this event. Parking will be available next door at the Thomasville Road Baptist Church, as well as at the Piedmont Park Alliance Church across the street. While the event is free, donations will be accepted for the Tallahassee Friends of Our Parks Foundation Inc.

If you can’t make Elf Night, the lights will be up for your enjoyment through the New Year.

Happy Holidays!
