Our Tampa Bay area Chick-fil-A restaurants plan many fun family events throughout the year and especially at Christmas time. Click here for a list of Tampa Bay area Chick-fil-A Christmas events.
There is, however, one particular Bay area Chick-fil-A restaurant — Chick-fil-A Waters Ave. — that kicks Christmas up yet another notch with their impressive annual light display, snow and entertainment for local families to enjoy! We never cease to be impressed by their warmth and enthusiasm, and we want to share with you all that they have planned so you can enjoy it as well.
Experience Holiday Magic at Chick-fil-A Waters Ave.
With the exception of their Breakfast with Santa, which is a ticketed event, these family holiday activities are FREE … you pay only for your food.
Photos with Santa
Santa comes out and sits under their big tree to visit and take photos with children and families every Friday night until Christmas. Photos are $6, and families are welcome to bring their own cameras. The restaurant staff also set up a snack table with cookies and hot cocoa.
Holiday Light Display
The lights are on every night (except for Sunday nights, when the restaurant is closed) after dark and snow comes on every 30 minutes, so stop by and enjoy a feast for the senses.
