TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The holiday season is officially here and DEP's Florida Park Service is proud to announce statewide events for all Florida
residents and visitors to participate in this month. With 174 state parks, trails and historic sites, there are a wide range of events to choose from.
“The holiday season is about spending time with family
and loved ones, and what better place to do that than at one of Florida’s
beautiful state parks?” said Florida Park Service Director Donald Forgione. “Your family and friends are sure to enjoy one or more of the many special celebrations taking place at Florida State Parks this month.”
Children can make their own holiday wreaths at the Dudley Farm Historic
