Every year Santa and Mrs. Claus visit Mount Dora neighborhoods with a few of their local friends. This year, Santa will tour neighborhoods on three evenings: December 3, 4 and 5.
Santa covers a lot of ground touring the city, so he relies on the generous 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 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. each of the three nights. Residents shouldn’t be alarmed when they hear the prolonged sound of emergency vehicles on those three evenings and just understand it’s Santa spreading some local cheer.
One of Santa’s stops is always right in the heart of downtown Mount Dora among its millions of twinkling lights. The Central Florida town has earned a reputation as the best little Christmas town in Florida.
Mrs. Claus reports Santa loves Christmas in Mount Dora, so his 2019 tour schedule covers a lot of the city and rotates a lot of neighborhoods every year. Residents of neighborhoods not on this year's tour can see Santa at Donnelly Park or Target at one of the times below.
Santa exact arrival times can be unpredictable due to traffic and unforeseen delays, but his elves assured Mount Dora Buzz that it's always well worth any wait that might occur.
