When you want to combine your entertainment with your holiday shopping, head to the annual Space Coast Lightfest. Prepare to be wowed by more than 2.7 million lights glowing holiday cheer throughout Melbourne's Wickham Park, and then head straight to the vendors and craft booths. In between shopping, grab a bite to eat, ride horses, go on a hayride, drink hot chocolate, visit with Santa and let your kids go wild on the bouncy houses. The light fest, organized by the Boy Scouts of America, is one of the Space Coast's biggest holiday extravaganzas and was named one of the Top 20 Events of Southeast United States by the Southeast Tourism Society. Drive or walk through (we recommend the latter). The light fest is an exciting, family-friendly way to knock out some holiday shopping and get psyched for Christmas, too.
