CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING & HOLIDAY CIRQUE EXPERIENCE
6-7pm: Dance performances by Dance Arts by Maria, Backstage Dance Academy and Etudes de Ballet
7pm (approximate time): Illumination of the Christmas Tree
7-8pm: Southwest Florida Symphony (in front of Narrative Coffee)
Mercato kicks off the holiday season with the lighting of the largest REAL tree in Southwest Florida!
Hosted by ABC-7's Jen Stacy and Greg Parker, the main stage in front of Bravo Italian Kitchen will feature music from Patchouli and dance performances from Dance Arts by Maria, Backstage Dance Academy and Naples Dance Conservatory. Meanwhile, the event lawn comes alive with a mesmerizing quartet of cirque performers.
After the Christmas tree is illuminated, the Southwest Florida Symphony will perform until 8pm in the Holiday Igloo outside Narrative Coffee Roasters.
Keep your eye out for Torrie, the world's tallest elf. She will be handing out individually wrapped pairs of Santa's magic glasses that transform holiday lights into a rainbow kaleidoscope.
