Oh, What Fun! Gulfstream Park Village to Host its Annual ‘Symphony in Lights’ Holiday Celebration

The most wonderful time of the year is here at Gulfstream Park Village! Running nightly from Nov. 12 – Dec. 31, 2023, families are invited to come and see the seasonal lights display in the open-air lifestyle center. The property will be illuminated in more than 250,000 LED lights, all set to the sounds of holiday classics and popular music from yesterday and today. A 10-minute light show will begin at the top of every hour from 6-11 p.m.

The public is invited to the ‘Symphony in Lights’ kick-off event on Saturday, November 11 from 7-10 p.m. This community celebration will feature DJ Chris Cruz and music from the Valerie Tyson 8-piece band. Representatives from the Cities of Hallandale Beach and Aventura, as well as FPL and the YMCA of South Florida will be in attendance to welcome guests. Even Santa Claus himself will be posing for selfies along with elves, dancers and Nutcracker stilt walkers. After the opening remarks, a 10-minute light show dazzled in snowfall will commence.

Oh, what fun it is! Viewers can revel in the festive décor, including a new Christmas tree, regal Santa chair and archway, elegant street light post ornaments, LED entrance lighting and a show-stopping tree topper. An expanded music program includes new remixes of holiday classics and today’s top hits.

Throughout the holiday season, Santa will be making scheduled visits to Gulfstream Park Village. Available on a first come, first serve basis from 6–9 p.m., Santa will be stationed in the ground level Village Center on select dates from Nov. 25 – Dec. 24, 2023. Families can enjoy the ambiance of Symphony in Lights while sharing their wish lists with the jolly old elf.
