Pssst...Santa is coming to town beginning on November 29. Every year Santa and Mrs. Claus visit Mount Dora neighborhoods with a few of their local friends. This year, they have expanded their tour of the city’s neighborhoods to four days.
To cover so much ground without his reindeer, Santa relies on the help of Mount Dora's Police and Fire Departments. The sound of loud sirens will fill the evening air as Santa and his festive motorcade travel throughout the city.
Mrs. Claus reports Santa loves Christmas in Mount Dora, so his 2021 tour schedule covers a lot of the city. As a result, his arrival times can be unpredictable, but his elves assured Mount Dora Buzz that it's always worth any wait that might occur.
Santa and his entourage will leave Mount Dora Police Department at 6 p.m. each of the four days. Here is the tour route for each day: DAY 1: November 29 West - Normandy Drive, Overlook Drive, Hillside Drive, Hilltop Drive, Dogwood Mountain, Downtown, Hammock Oaks Apartments, Eudora Chase Subdivision, Spring Harbor Apartments, Village Grove Subdivision, Tri-Cities Shopping Plaza, Walmart, Chick-Fil-A, & Target DAY 2: November 30 Northeast - Northeast Community, Bristol Lakes Apartments, Country Club of Mount Dora, Loch Leven Shopping Plaza DAY 3: December 1 Southeast - Donnelly Park, Downtown, South Simpson Street, South Rhodes Street, South Rossiter Street, Cobble Hill Subdivision, Dorset Subdivision, Overlook Subdivision, Chautauqua Subdivision, & South Clayton Street
