Heights Holiday Festival
Back to News

Armature Works is pleased to announce the first annual, Heights Holiday Festival. Join us on December 14th and December 15th to spread Holiday cheer and to give kids something to smile about this holiday season all while taking some pressure off families in need.

Armature Works and Metropolitan Ministries have teamed up to bring the annual Fox 13 News Toy Drive to Armature Works.  Guests can expect visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus, festive holiday décor and photo worthy spots, train rides, live music, face painting, cookie decorating, a snow machine, and more.

We will be accepting donations on Friday from 7:00am – 7:00pm. Toy and non- perishable food donations can be dropped off within the Heights Holiday Festival (11am – 5pm) on the Armature Works West Lawn, or at the drop-and-go location on the corner of Ola Ave and 7th Ave (7am – 7pm.)

Saturday’s festivities will go from 10:00am – 5:00pm and include activities from Friday along with a poinsettia patch, a kid’s craft corner, and much more.

Attendees who bring one or more unwrapped toy donation or five or more non-perishable food items to the Metropolitan Ministries Donation Truck will receive a voucher for a complimentary train ride or a beer from Cigar City Brewing.

Join us for this exciting, inaugural event as we celebrate the Holiday season, all while helping those less fortunate in the Tampa Bay community. We hope to see you there!
