An annual holiday tradition is making its return to Winter Garden this weekend.

The Winter Garden Christmas Golf Cart Parade is back to bring locals an abundance of fresh holiday cheer. This year will mark the ninth year of the West Orange Junior Service League's event. 

The golf carts will gather in Bradford Park before heading out to the parade. The parade will eventually end back in the same spot. 

In order to give back to the community, 100% of the money raised will be donated and distributed to local non-profit organizations in West Orange County.

Each $50 golf cart admission ticket will include a 2021 commemorative ornament, although additional ornaments can be purchased the day of the event for $10, while supplies last.

Judges will be on the look-out for the most unique carts, costumes and lights at the event.

Each cart will also be given the opportunity to cast a "People's Choice" vote for their favorite cart. Winners will be announced at the conclusion of the parade on the prize board and then virtually on the WG Christmas Golf Cart Parade Facebook page.

For more information including contest prizes, sponsorship opportunities, tickets and more, email Melanie Koppe at [email protected] or Melissa Johnson at [email protected].
