After the stroll, head down to the Mandeville Trailhead at 7:00 p.m. to sing along to classic Christmas carols with the city-wide choir ensemble hosted by The City of Mandeville. Candles and song sheets will be provided--all free.

On Saturday, the Annual Winter on the Water (WOW) at the Mandeville Lakefront begins with Santa’s parade at 4:00 on Lakeshore drive at the harbor and ends at the Gazebo. While waiting for the parade to arrive, enjoy live entertainment at the gazebo featuring seasonal music performed Benny Grunch and the Bunch, Mandeville Elementary School, and scenes from the Nutcracker performed by Ballet Apetrei.
