Get in the Holiday Spirit in Cooper City

Few things symbolize the holiday spirit than the flickering lights on a Christmas Tree or the beautiful flame of a Menorah candle.  The community is invited to join together to kick off the holiday season on Friday, December 3rd at Light Up Cooper City at the Park.

“During this longstanding community tradition, the trees at Memorial Park will be covered in lights for everyone to enjoy,” explains Cooper City Recreation Program Specialist Brandon Zickar.

Residents will enjoy choral recitals by local schools and performances by local dance studios. Children can partake in holiday-themed inflatables, train rides, and other activities, while adults can do some holiday shopping at the craft fair, which will feature about ten vendors.

Santa Claus will be in town for this special event, taking photos with children at the gazebo. Be sure to charge your phone before you come!

With all this fun, guests are sure to work up an appetite. There will be a number of food booths, offering a myriad of tasty treats for purchase.

Brunch with Santa

Cooper City kids who are in 3rd grade or under are in for a treat! Santa Claus is coming to town and will be hosting brunch in Cooper City. Every participant will get their photo taken with Santa, complete a craft project and participate in “holiday” games. This event has limited seating and tickets will not be sold at the door. Cost is $12 for adults (two adults per child) and $8 per child. The event will be held at Cooper City High School.

Holiday Movie at the Park

All ages will enjoy a special holiday edition of the monthly Movie at the Park. Get your chairs and blankets ready as Cooper City Recreation presents a holiday-themed movie for your family’s enjoyment.  Join us at Memorial Park for a popcorn-filled night of family movie fun.  Food and beverages are available for purchase.  Winners of the 2021 Home Decorating Contest will be announced. The show takes place at 7:00 pm on December 10.

Before the film, the winners of the Holiday Home Decorating Contest will be announced. Prizes are awarded for the Most Creative, Most Lights, and Best Decorated Home.
