It’s Time to Visit Tavares

Tavares, America's Seaplane City, splashes down with its Christmas celebrations on December 3 with its City Christmas Light-up and parade.
This year's theme is Twas the Flight Before Christmas. The parade starts down Main Street at 5:30pm. Activities at nearby Wooton Park will follow and include Santa arriving by seaplane (of course!), falling snow, ice skating, horse drawn wagon rides, S'mores Pit, photo booth, face painting, a bounce house, Kids DJ, Library Book Giveaway, rock climbing wall, great food and more food, as well as a variety of seasonal entertainment. 
Some 7,000 take-offs and landings from the Tavares Seaplane Base & Marina in its first year of operation and 16 major community events at Wooton Park each year brings in thousands of visitors to Tavares. Soon waterfront entertainment offerings will be expanded to include an event pavilion and pier, which is expected to be under construction by mid-2012. The Tavares Pavilion on the Lake will host community events, business conferences, weddings and formal events.
Tavares will host the season-opening stop for the BASS Bassmaster Open Southern Division from January 19 to 21 at Wooton Park, Lake Dora. It will be the Bassmaster Open's only stop in Florida. Weigh-ins are open to the public, with a variety of food and vendors throughout the park. 
The annual African-American Heritage Parade & Festival on February 4
begins at 10am with a parade down Main Street. Festivities continue at Wooton Park on the waterfront with ethnic foods, history and cultural learning, arts & crafts, rides for kids.

And every Saturday night venture into the haunted, historical world of Tavares with the Floating Ghosts Séance Tour of Downtown Tavares for a hair-raising tour into the haunted past of this historic city.
