Cooper City is in the Holiday Spirit!

Few things symbolize the holiday spirit more than the flickering lights on a Christmas Tree or the beautiful flame of a Menorah candle.  Everyone in the community is invited to join together to kick off the holiday season on Friday, December 2nd at Light Up Cooper City at Memorial Park.

“During this longstanding community tradition, the trees at Memorial Park will be covered in lights for everyone to enjoy,” explains Cooper City Recreation Director Stacie Weiss.

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.

Cookies and Cocao with Santa

Cooper City kids in 3rd grade or under are in for a treat! Santa Claus is coming to town and will be enjoying fresh-baked cookies and sweet cocoa in Cooper City. Every participant will get their photo taken with Santa, enjoy refreshments and participate in “holiday” games. This event will be held at the Community Center at 9000 SW 50 Place, at 8:30 pm on December 9th.
