Gaylord Palms Christmas Tree Lighting and Light Show During the Holiday Season

The Gaylord Palms Resort is known for their holiday ICE! attraction during the Christmas season but another hidden gem not publicized as much is their Christmas Tree Lighting and Light Show that is held on select nights at the resort.

With a live band and caroling bringing the season to light, over 2 million twinkling lights are  synchronized to music for a Christmas Light show. The best part is that the show is free for guests of the hotel.

The Christmas Tree Lighting and the main Christmas Lights show are held during two different performances. The Christmas Tree lighting happens soon after sunset at 6:15pm with about a 10 minute caroling show that leads to the lighting of the Christmas Tree. The tree is 54 feet tall that looks over the St Augustine Atrium in the center of the hotel.
