Starlight Nights is Winter Haven’s newest Holiday tradition – a festival of lights celebrating the Holidays and the city’s wonderful Historic Downtown District.

Starlight Nights with 22,000 Lights

From December 1 through January 6 visitors can experience the magic of the Holiday’s with over 22,000 lights, extended shopping hours (Thursday – Saturday only), and food and drink specials!
