St. Luke’s United Methodist Church is partnering with We Bring the Funny to produce a special free “TwELF Days of Christmas” drive-thru experience from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Dec. 11 through 13 and Dec. 18 through 20.

Guests will stay in their vehicles while they drive alongside North Pole elves on a journey to create the greatest gift for Orlando. The extraordinary holiday lights, bright colored costumes and eye-popping sets will illuminate the way for live music and comedy acts.

“We are finding new ways to celebrate Christmas and come together as a community while keeping everyone safe,” event director Steve MacKinnon said.

The “TwELF Days of Christmas” is a contactless social distanced event that pairs timeless holiday traditions with lively expressions of Christmas fun for all ages.

“The collaboration with professionals from our community, of all different backgrounds, has been incredibly inspiring,” MacKinnon said. “So many people have donated their time and talent to make this a truly memorable, festive and funny experience for our guests.”

St. Luke’s Lead Pastor Jennifer Stiles Williams said, “The arts, entertainment and theme park industries have been some of the hardest-hit sectors locally, and we wanted to engage performers and crew members impacted by the pandemic in something that would lift their spirits and reconnect them with audiences.”

St. Luke’s and We Bring the Funny are keeping safety at the top of their Christmas list, so while this event is free, tickets are required to help manage capacity and social distancing.

The church is at 4851 S. Apopka-Vineland Road, Orlando.
