2017 I-Drive Holiday Tree Lighting

Wednesday, November 22, 2017
Come one, come all to the Holiday Tree Lighting!
Our favorite tradition of the year is upon us – The Holiday Tree Lighting at Pointe Orlando. Once again, we’ll be holding our annual free event for all to experience and celebrate as we transform International Drive Orlando into a winter wonderland, full of season’s greetings, glittering lights, and joyful delights. Here’s what you need to jump start the holiday season on I-Drive:
We will be lighting I-Drive’s 50-foot-tall tree… but that’s not all!
Did you catch the I-Ride Trolley Chords barbershop quartet last year?
The joyful celebration includes performances by the I-Ride Trolley Chords barbershop quartet, Jonathan & Kellie from Prodigy Talent Training, the Dr. Phillips High School Dance in Motion performances including Nutcracker excerpts and Toy Soldiers, and the Central Florida Community Arts Children’s Choir and Youth Ensemble.
You can’t miss the Dr. Phillips High School Dance in Motion Nutcracker performances!
Plus, Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there to say hello and pose for photos by the tree. #IDriveDazzles
Don’t miss your opportunity to take a photo with Santa and Mrs. Claus!
The Holiday Tree Lighting will take place on Friday, December 1st. Festivities begin at 6 pm and we encourage you to arrive early to get a great spot to watch the performances and tree lighting. Even better, make a day of it at Pointe Orlando and enjoy a little shopping and dinner before the excitement!
A staple on International Drive, you’ll find the Holiday Tree at Pointe Orlando’s outdoor patio between Funky Monkey and Blue Martini. Whether you walk, drive, or arrive by trolley, you can’t miss it at Trolley Stop 18 and G11.
The Holiday Tree lights up Pointe Orlando and International Drive.
Everyone in Orlando knows that International Drive dazzles during the holiday season! The tree is just one of many holiday traditions and joyful celebration that transform the I-Drive Resort Area during the month of December. You can also find our I-Ride Trolleys decorated for the remainder of the year, sparkling reminders of the season’s greetings on light poles, and lots of other great holiday reminders.
Dazzle in delight under the Holiday Tree.
The month-long Holiday Dazzle on I-Drive program is sponsored by the I-Drive Business Improvement District and benefits the Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program.
Every year, the I-Drive Business Improvement District brings the Holiday Tree to International Drive Orlando!
What else?
If you can’t make it to the I-Drive Holiday Tree Lighting, no worries! The tree will be up for the remainder of the month. Plus, we’ll be sharing photos and videos of the tree lighting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram too!
