Hoffman’s Chocolates Winter Wonderland Is Now Open, And It’s The Perfect Way To Kick Off The Holidays
There won’t be snow on the ground, but you can walk in a winter wonderland right here in Palm Beach County.
Now through Dec. 30, visitors can head to the Hoffman’s Chocolates location in Greenacres to enjoy festive displays using more than 75,000 LED lights, sweet treats (obviously) and, yes, a chance to meet Santa.
The Winter Wonderland will feature a lit gazebo, cascading foundations, an Arctic zone with lighted polar bears and penguins, a 14-foot Christmas tree and a new Hanukkah display.
Guests are welcome to bring blankets to sit on the lawn and enjoy live entertainment, such as magicians, musicians and bell ringers. Families can also pose with St. Nick himself and Mrs. Claus. (Plus, you can bring your own camera!)
One thing’s for certain: You won’t go hungry while enjoying the festivities. Hoffman’s will be selling ice cream and milkshakes in seasonal flavors, including pumpkin spice and chocolate aztec, as well as their famous chocolates.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hoffman’s Chocolates, as well as the 25th year of the Winter Wonderland, visitors will be entered for a chance to win free chocolate for an entire year.
The Winter Wonderland will be open nightly from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., with extended hours until 11 p.m. from Dec. 18 to Dec. 23. See below for a short list of scheduled events:
