Doral will bring snow, Santa, and holiday cheers with the biggest event, Holiday Lights & Ice on Dec. 13, at Doral Central Park from 6 p.m.

The night will be filled with snow piles and snow in the air, that will make Doral Central Park become into a Winter Wonderland with 85 tons of snow to play and for all families to enjoy!

There will be carnival rides, food, musical performances, and more family-friendly activities. There is no age limit to have fun during this event…
