The holidays are a time to spend time with your family and make memories that will forever be etched in your hearts. As parents, all we wish for our children is happiness, and during this time of the year, our children’s minds wander off into a land where Santa spends his days checking his list twice and his handy little helpers work night and day preparing the toys they hope will be under their Christmas tree Christmas morning. One thing that we can do to make sure that our children’s Christmas is as special as we can is to make some special memories by enjoying these family-friendly events in Miami that are taking place throughout the holiday season.

Most everyone has heard of the nation’s largest Christmas theme park, Santa's Enchanted Forest that has been a Miami tradition for almost 32 years now. This magical and festive fair is open all December until January 4th. Visitors come from miles around to visit the park dazzling in Christmas greatness. Santa’s Enchanted Forest has over 100 rides, shows, and games which of course are all Christmas themed. Don’t forget the delicious fair food that can be smelled from outside the gigantic wonderland. While your eyes feast on all the twinkling lights, your mouth can feast on turkey legs, french fries, sweet treats and much more!

South Florida is known for many things, and snow just is not one of them. Yes, here in Miami we celebrate Christmas with shorts and t-shirts with an occasional hoodie coming out now and then. But at Dolphin Mall, you can get a taste of what Christmas is like in parts of the nation that turn white for winter. That’s right; Magical Snowfall makes its way to Miami for 15 minutes nightly at 7 p.m. now until January 7th only closing for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Years Day. Don’t miss this opportunity to have a white Christmas in Miami! 

If you are looking for a more hands-on experience for the little ones, then head on out to Winterland on the Farm at Pinto's Farm. The kids will have a blast riding ponies, going on hay rides, paddle boating and making friends with the animals at the petting zoo. Winterland on the Farm is open December 16th through January 7th.

Have a holly jolly Christmas with the family this year in Miami. Get the family together and head out to any of these fun-filled venues and make memories that will last a lifetime. There is nothing better than looking at your little one’s faces and seeing them smile ear to ear with the glimmer of Christmas lights in their eyes. These family-friendly Christmas events is a great way to make this Christmas special. From everyone at here, have a safe and Merry Christmas!
