Can you believe we are already in the home stretch to close out this crazy year we call 2020?! As we approach the end of November family and friends are undoubtedly figuring out how to navigate the holiday season in a new and different way. It’s quite understandable things are not/will not be the same this year. That said, some of our most favorite holiday traditions are still with us, with folks just trying to adapt to a world immersed in a global pandemic.
One organization that seems to have possibly figured it out is the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra. In partnership with the City of Winter Park, they’re inviting Central Florida residents to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season at their socially-distanced Holiday Pops concert on December 6 (Sunday), at 5 p.m. Taking place in Winter Park’s beautiful Central Park, this free, public event is made possible by the Charlotte Julie Hollander Trust. Attendees can bring a blanket and picnic for a musical program that has become a family tradition in central Florida.
If you’re interested but are very concerned about health safety and guidelines, you can rest assured strict safety protocols will be in place throughout this event as recommended by the CDC and our local authorities. Temperature checks will be required for all before being allowed admittance into the venue, and face coverings must be worn at all times. Not ideal but at least it won’t prohibit events like this from happening. Seating will also be appropriately socially distanced. Parking is free for this event. Tents and pets are not permitted.
You can reserve your 10×10 socially distance pod for up to six (6) people on the City of Winter Park’s Parks and Recreation Eventbrite page. You can also call 407.599.3463 for additional info.
