The Magic of Pensacola Winterfest

The moment you enter Plaza Wonderland on Palafox Place, the snow begins to fall. A cup of hot chocolate and the sound of a trolley bell brings back memories of the Polar Express.

Take a ride aboard our mini-train through the lights, snow, and magical scenery of Winterfest!
