Thanksgiving Weekend in Lake County Florida

Events for Thanksgiving weekend in Lake County Florida

Getting ready to enjoy the nice long holiday weekend? Great! Some people enjoy taking care of their Christmas shopping on Thanksgiving weekend. I do too, but I tend to do it from home rather than tackling the craziness of Black Friday in the stores! If you're looking for something to do this weekend other than shopping, here's what Lake County, Florida has to offer:

Thursday, November 28, 2019:

  • Happy Thanksgiving! Are you still looking to make dinner plans? See if any of these options might work for you.

Lake County Florida Calendar of Events for this weekend

Thursday, November 28, 2019 - Sunday, January 5, 2020:

  • Here's something you don't expect in Florida - it's Eustis on Ice! General admission is $10 per person and includes unlimited skating for the day and skate rental. They have a Sip n' Skate Pass option for $90 that includes 10 skate passes with skate rentals plus 10 drinks. You can use any number of your skate passes each day (meaning you can use them for a large group in one day or spread them out). Hours are usually 3-9 pm on Monday-Thursday, 3-10 pm on Friday, 10 am - 10 pm on Saturday, and 1-7 pm on Sunday. Holiday hours of 3-9 pm will be in effect on Thanksgiving Day. Guests will enjoy skating on real ice! Coin operated small lockers are available for $0.50 while skating.

See the Best Stocking Stuffers for 2019 and shop for Holiday Gifts for everyone on your wish list. Need a gift for someone that loves to read - check out a Kindle Unlimited Membership Plan. Don't have Amazon Prime yet - here's a 30 Day Free Trial for Amazon Prime. Know someone that would appreciate the Gift of a 3 or 12 Month Amazon Prime Membership? Amazon Gift Cards & e-Gift Cards are always a nice option as well. I love Amazon shopping, especially on Black Friday!
