The Shops at Wiregrass Continues the Holiday Tradition of Symphony in Lights Beginning with its Tree Lighting Celebration on Nov. 16
Wesley Chapel, FL — The Shops at Wiregrass
On Saturday, November 16 at 5PM, The Shops at Wiregrass will once again transform into a winter wonderland to kick off the holiday season. This annual tradition includes the tree lighting celebration, live music by Late Night Brass, stilt walkers, costumed characters, face painting, talented balloon artists, and holiday carolers.
At 6PM Santa will arrive and Symphony in Lights will begin! This spectacular holiday light show is choreographed to music featuring the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and holiday classics. Guests will enjoy the dazzling display of dancing lights on the hour as well as a nightly snowfall. The show will continue nightly through Dec. 31, 6PM to 9PM. These events are free for the public to attend.
Guests are invited to check items off their holiday shopping list with our wide variety of shops and boutiques including newly opened Row House and Mimmic. Retailers Buckle and Hollister will also feature freeze modeling for inspiration and entertainment.
During the kick off celebration, and throughout the season, our guests may also enjoy our many restaurants, such as Noble Crust, GrillSmith, Pinchers, Cantina Laredo, Yamato, and new to Wiregrass, Teriyaki Madness.
