Where to See Snow in St. Petersburg
A list of place and events to see snow and ice in St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay.
We're dreaming of a white Christmas just like everyone else, but snow isn't exactly on the radar here in St. Petersburg. While these events may not technically have "real" snow or ice, here are a few places where your family can get a feel of winter if even just for one day (and you can probably still wear your flip flops.)
Nightly Snowfall at Sundial
November 17 - December 31, 6:00-9:30pm
Santa brought a little piece of the North Pole along with him to The Mall at Sundial! Snow is in the forecast every night (yes, every night!) at Sundial. Snow will fall on the courtyard every 30 minutes from 6-9:30 PM. Bring your whole family down to The Mall at Sundial to meet Santa, dance in the snow, shop, dine and unwind this holiday season!
