Mount Dora will come alive with over 2 million lights this Saturday, November 24, during the 37th annual Light Up Mount Dora. Workers with Mount Dora Marina, the City of Mount Dora, and local businesses have been stringing up the lights in the city since mid-October. The combined efforts of these groups have turned the Central Florida town into an increasingly well-known Christmas destination. Mount Dora Marina alone has over a million lights and is reportedly the largest privately-owned light display in Central Florida.
Light Up Mount Dora will feature pre-show events in downtown Donnelly Park with dancers, traditional Christmas carols and much more. Residents and visitors are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and blankets to the park.
