Nocatee residents and community guests enjoyed a very special Christmas Festival themed Farmers Market on Saturday, December 21st.

The day of family-friendly fun included musical performances from the New Orleans-style Dixieland group, TGIF, one of thirteen official U.S. Navy Bands, Santa & Mrs. Claus photo opportunities, large petting zoo, train rides, inflatable slides, food trucks and a holiday Kid’s Kraft station. Families enjoyed listening to the band as they browsed for one-of-a-kind holiday gifts under sunny skies in the lively and festive holiday atmosphere.
